The three duos of Play (after Beckett) each explore the tension and frustration of life’s daily activities and tasks as well as their antithesis. The domestic becomes the absolute, as ambiguous characters embody their cyclic ordinary realities in search of answers; even the sublime.
Emotions are given full subtlety and powerful expression through the use of music interdependent in its relationship to the work of the actor, thus the symbiosis of the two disciplines combine to create one unique, fragile and interdependent performance.
Play (after Beckett) is not dance nor is it mime, instead presenting a new form where music and acting co-exist in a single moment. Ensemble Amorpha is particularly excited to be collaborating with the director Peter Cant and video artist Krzysztof Honowski, to produce the first ever performance of all three duos together as Play (after Beckett).
