"Theater Games" ft. Gary Schwartz, Sunday 15 Apr 2018

SPECIAL EVENT. ONE SHOW ONLY.  BOOK NOW.

Enjoy the fun of watching actors at play. "Theater Games" is a show full of fun, laughter, and inspiration. The actors have no script, just their intuition and wit to guide them.

As part of his 2018 international tour, Gary Schwartz will be touching down in Christchurch for an intense weekend of training with local actors.  The culmination of which will be a delightful showcase of local talent under the guidance of this award-winning teacher and director.

"Theater Games" are used as a fun way for actors to learn valuable acting skills, in a way that avoids self-consciousness and intellectualising.  In this playful, active state the actor discovers intuitive, inspired choices that come spontaneously. The mind is kept busy in the moment of creating or playing, rather than getting caught up pre-planning, comparing or judging choices.

The results are a joy to watch. Come and see for yourself!

Strangers

A UNIQUE COMEDY-DRAMA EXPLORING THE LIVES OF STRANGERS

What happens when two strangers meet? Do they pass like ships in the night, have a brief moment of connection, or form a lifelong friendship? Do they fall in love, or become mortal enemies?

STRANGERS explores the moment when two people meet, and how their relationship develops or disintegrates. Watch as our actors create beautiful moments of humour, heartbreak, and humanity in an unscripted exploration of the genesis of relationship.
