LOVE AND INFORMATION by Caryl Churchill

CO-PRESENTED WITH ROBERT THE CAT

A contemporary masterpiece by one of the most important playwrights working today. In 58 short scenes and with over 120 characters, the play is a dazzling collage that looks at the way we communicate and interact as human beings in a contemporary world of information overload and anxiety.

The timeless and dazzling music of Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” provides a path through this theatrical tour de force.

Scenes of tragedy, humour, banality and mystery as well as a constant stream of sometimes recognizable and often strange slices of life, examine how we process information, how we remember, create meaning, and seek love and understanding.

THE ARTIST

Robert the Cat

 

Robert the Cat (RTC) is a new theatre collective headed by Lisa O’Neill and Anatoly Frusin (directors), and Rosalind Williams (vocal coach). Together, they have directed and taught within the acting program at TAFE Queensland for over a decade; and maintained a wide range of national and international creative practice across many theatrical platforms and genres.

For the past 10 years they have had the pleasure of working with apprentice actors within an educational setting, developing contemporary works that are highly crafted and marked by an emotional intensity, physicality and theatricality.

The Robert the Cat collective has been established to take the work of these practitioners to a broader public, provide the many talented graduates from the course with a platform to continue their theatre practice, and create an opportunity to showcase their skilled work as emerging performers in challenging contemporary theatre practice.
