You hear something rumbling and thundering in nearby alleyway. It’s getting closer, it seems to be… trumpeting. You could have sworn it was a person just a moment ago. It charges past you, large, raucous, grey. You jump out of the way, and watch it fade it into the distance. If it weren’t such a silly idea, you would have said it looked not unlike a Rhinoceros. No-one else seems to think so. But then again, everyone else is also a rhinoceros. What would they know?

Ready for a wild night out? Join the award-winning Jetpack Theatre Collective for a breathtaking night of Eugène Ionesco’s absurdist masterpiece.

The joy during the hours of creation long gone, the sunburned characters who populate beside, around, in and under the water in WE, THE LOST COMPANY paroxysm in front of us. The water soothes them and the echoes of water, the spit of a splash or the contemplative music of a lap pulls the unbidden memory from an audience transported in the observation of beauty.

Inspired initially by the canvases of Brett Whiteley’s beach series in which the human figures range from sand ridden to sun reaching, this work from the Clockfire Theatre collective delves into the human relationship with water. The work also draws on Whiteley’s admiration for Yukio Mishima who is more remembered in the West for his ceremonial seppuku death than his work. The Japanese connection is further explored with references to the 2000 year old tradition of the Ama Pearl Divers. Continue reading WE, THE LOST COMPANY @ THE OLD 505 THEATRE
