Ranters Theatre Holiday Wed 30 March — Sat 2 April • 8pm • Mer 30 Mawrth — Sad 2 Ebrill Melbourne-based Ranters Theatre return to Chapter with their multi-award winning show. Gently provocative, meditative and strangely disarming, Holiday presents a moment of relaxation and quiet reflection between two men. Spontaneous, unaffected and affectingly real, innocent discussion becomes an exploration of private fantasy, hidden anxiety, personal mythology and other inexplicable behaviours. Concept and direction by Adriano Cortese; text by Raimondo Cortese; sound design and operation by David Franzke; lighting design by Niklas Pajanti; Set (adapted from original design) by Anna Tregloan; performed and co-devised by Paul Lum and Patrick Moffatt; company manager Alison Halit. £12/10/£8 This project has been assisted by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria and by Arts House through the City of Melbourne and Arts Victoria.
“an extraordinary piece of theatre… sends the audience into the night refreshed and afloat on a sea of calm... the two performances are exquisitely judged.” Irish Independent “This is theatre of the moment, in which no word exists before it is uttered, no action before it is performed. There is no story in the sense of a developing narrative, just a series of crystalline moments that can leap from the boring to the beautiful in a breath.” Real Time Magazine
