Love and Information
By Caryl Churchill

Directed by Gaye Poole

8th-16th November 2013
 

Someone has a secret, another can't sleep, there's a reception problem, someone is having an affair, one wants his sister back, one wants an answer, someone thinks they've won an argument, another dreams of infidelity symbols, one refuses to answer the door, one hears God's voice, one can't remember anything about the wedding, one can't not remember everything, former lovers can't recall the same things, others want a memory technique, someone forgets dinner, someone can't forget, someone hasn't bought the rash cream, one can't have children, one can't say sorry, one is frightened about climate, one can't make a decision, one can't feel pain, one loves virtually, one knows the sound a capercaillie makes.

18 actors perform over a hundred characters in an episodic kaleidoscope exploring the way human beings process information and feelings

ABOUT US

The metaphor of Carving in Ice evokes the transience of theatre. Ice sculptures are crafted by artisans whose sculptures last only for a short while, then melt and disappear. Theatre too is ephemeral in its nature; once the season is completed, the existence of the play, the shapes, sounds, movement in space, the light on actors’ skin disappear from view – but as with ice sculptures the traces of the experience continue to live on in the minds of those who were present.
