A PROVOKING and entertaining play which tells a fairytale story about a fisherman and a ventriloquist will be coming to Malvern next month.
Malvern based Reaction Theatre Makers will presenting their new visual show ‘FishHead’ at Malvern Cube on Saturday, May 10 starting at 8pm.
The unique show is an original piece about living and dying well. Tom and Lydia met by the sea where all the best stories start.
Lydia reaches out to Tom through Jonty, her ventriloquist dummy and all of the action takes place around, inside, under and on top of a pristine cube of beautifully-lit Perspex.
In a series of unusual twists suited dancers seamlessly transform the cube from caravan to boat to cliff top punctuating the action with fresh choreography.
Music plays a significant role in shaping the tone of the evening featuring some carefully selected tracks which serve to elevate the emotional intensity of key moments.
The pace ebbs and flows like the waves and at times the audience is left to drink in the atmosphere which is in plentiful supply.
The combination of the atmosphere, an emotionally charged script and fine performances from all concerned, delivers a powerful and moving experience.
The company are a group of Midlands-based artists creating innovative cross-art visual theatre who tell stories which focus on mental well-being and our changing environment. Quirky, abstract and yet accessible to all, they aim to strike a balance between creating theatre as a tool for social change and theatre as entertainment.
