6 September – 8 October 2011 8.00pm (mat 3.00pm) Marcello Magni and KP Productions present
Tell Them That I Am Young and Beautiful Text by Gilles Aufray Directed by Marcello Magni Created and performed by Marcello Magni, Kathryn Hunter, Patrice Naiambana, David Bartlomeij Soroczynski and Kora player Tunde Jegede. Designed by Sophie Jump Lighting Designed by Alex Wardle Greed. Hospitality. Sacrifice. Knowledge. Truth. Freedom. Love. Seven words, seven stories, seven moments of theatre played in an empty space like a game, magical and dangerous. A farmer proposes marriage under the stars in Italy, a kidney donor is on the run in Paris, birds come to life in ancient India, a brother plays dead in Senegal, and a young lover is in search of Truth.
An international company draw on their wealth of experience working with Complicite, Peter Brook, Jacques Lecoq and others to devise a new play based on stories from around the world. When words begin to lose their meaning, they lose their weight and men their sense of direction… Sellig Furaya in What Is Gravity Without Stories?
Tell Them That I Am Young and Beautiful explores our relationship with the ‘other’: the person we think we know but don’t, the stranger on the street, the person who is different.
