Theatre Review | THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA | Nós do Morro @ Barbican Pit
The Brazilian creative venture founded by the actor Guti Fraga, Nós do Morro, explodes into the Barbican Pit space with its heady, energetic and youthful adaptation of The Two Gentlemen of Verona. Fraga’s company of actors are drawn from the Vidigal community to the south of Rio de Janeiro. Vidigal is no smart suburb, no comfortable training ground for artists and performers supported by parental and grandparental bank accounts. Vidigal is a shanty town, one of the infamous favola, rife with gang violence and uncomfortably high mortality rate among its population of over forty thousand persons. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Theatre Review | HELIUM | Barbican Pit
Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award, the experimental performance company Slung Low creates a fascinating experiential world in the Barbican Pit. Combining all that is great about the British (and European) passion for avant garde artistic expression, Slung Low's Helium engages with its audience on an intimate, one-on-one basis.

Theatre Review | TROILUS & CRESSIDA | Cheek by Jowl [tour]
The actors have been robbed of their faces. Cheek by Jowl company's director, Declan Donnellan, and designer, Nick Ormerod, have lit their production in such a way that you rarely see one of the performers' greatest assets. Add the complications of strange placing with questionable vocal delivery and the consequences are boring and dispiriting in equal measure. But these are assertions. Let me make my case. Norman Tozer [more]

 

 

Saturday 17th May 2008
Theatre Review | BORIS GODUNOV | Cheek by Jowl @ Barbican Theatre
Cheek by Jowl, under the artistic direction of Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod, have pulled off a surprising cultural coup. The Barbican 'bite08' season introduces two Cheek by Jowl productions. Later this month Troilus and Cressida and, this week, the Russian political epic Boris Godunov. The former in English, the latter in Russian with surtitles. Make no mistake, Pushkin's masterpiece sits easily alongside a Shakespeare classic. There is spectacle and humour, lust and passion, political intrigue, disguise and bloody murder.

Theatre Review | IN SPITTING DISTANCE | Rukab Project @ Barbican Pit
The political and historical irony accompanying the opening night of Taher Najib's In Spitting Distance will not have been lost on the Barbican's multi-cultural audience. Performed on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel, this one-hour one-performer play graphically explores the life of a Palestinian in Ramallah who, for six months, 'escapes' to the relative ease of Paris. Kevin Quarmby [more]

Theatre Review | HOMELAND / LAURIE ANDERSON | Barbican Theatre
Since Laurie Anderson's recording career took off in 1981 with the ground breaking 'O Superman' she has never sold out to mainstream and is consistently innovative, imaginative and beguiling with her performance artistry. Evie Rackham [more]
