Pants on Fire
The Tolmen Centre and Pants on Fire Theatre Company invite you to attend an evening of Performance Puppetry and Music based on the company’s new show Pinnochio, followed with a discussion forum, on Saturday 23rd March at The Tolmen Centre starting at 7.30.
Pants on Fire is a multi award winning International theatre company based in London. They create new, original, exciting, dramatically dynamic and visually brilliant high quality theatre. Many will remember their show Ovid’s Metamorphoses which played at The Tolmen Centre in May 2011 – one of our best ever performances – which went on to runs in London and New York and won many awards.
The Company are to undertake a short residency at The Tolmen Centre from 14th-23rd March – with the primary intention of developing the new show. Originally this residency was planned to put the finishing touches Pinnochio, leading to a preview of the end product. However, events have conspired such that the show will be in its early or mid stages of development.
The performance will therefore be a full-length ‘work in progress’ showing which will involve some ‘script in hand’ performing, some imaginative props and scenery, as well as the detailed work being created during the week. Because of this, and the way in which Pants on Fire like to present their work, they would like to make the showing more of an ‘event’, encouraging the audience to feel part of the development process. They will perform the songs from the show, the audience can meet the puppets and generally explore the world of the play together. They would then love to talk with the audience informally after the showing as any feedback at this stage would be really useful in taking the development forward.
Tickets for this show are FREE – but please reserve in the usual way by phone or email. We will be asking for contributions based on what you think its worth to cover the Tolmen Centre’s costs.
Café Tolmen will be open pre-show – please reserve for this as well so we have numbers.
We are very grateful to The Works and Venue Cornwall for financial help to allow this exciting residency to take place.
The producer and designer of Scaramouche – Guy Masterson – will bring us his own celebrated and renowned solo version of the great Dylan Thomas ‘play for voices’ with all the design and production values that his company has become famous for. It has played all over the world – they’re just back from the Adelaide festival – and this is one of only a handful of productions licenced by the Dylan Thomas estate. Guy plays every one of the enormous range of characters in what is justly described as a tour de force. For just one night in Cornwall – only at The Tolmen Centre May 9th at 7.30
