MEASURE FOR MEASURE by SHAKESPEARE

By Theatrecorp TC

description

Theatrecorp's seventh classic production is a tight, visceral ensemble version of MEASURE FOR MEASURE.

This play, rarely seen in the West of Ireland. has sharp parallels with today's world. Dressed in formal black and white, the actors create the repressive atmosphere of Vienna where sex is allowed only within marriage, after the Duke's deputy re-establishes a law, and condemns a young nobleman to death who has made his fiancee pregnant.

Theatrecorp has been performing World Classics in Galway and on tour since 2004 . Productions of Faustus, Waiting For Godot, Blood Wedding , The Maids, The Human Voice and The Glass Menagerie have received great acclaim.

The company is looking for €5000 money which will basically make it happen, to be used for costume, set, lighting and publicity. The play itself is being taught at Nui Galway, and an exciting copartnership is in place for that . And we continue our partnership with the Town Hall Theatre. But we need financial support. Actors are giving their time and talent for very little in order to be part of this production, but the excitement and commitment are there.

The production will be presented in raw ensemble style which is a style the company embraces in many of its productions. Multipart playing, spare sets, and focus on physicality and the story. It allows the audience to make real contact with the performers and the play.

Theatrecorp's commitment to using artists from the West of Ireland was one of the reasons we set this company up, to remind the theatre world of the talent here. For MEASURE this has an added dimension in this production is that we will be also utilising a specific acting technique in rehearsal, the Chekhov Technique, to explore and work on the text. There will be an exciting opportunity to discuss this process with the actors and director towards the end of rehearsal or perhaps if you choose to subscribe, to read about the process in the director’s log.

ALL THE REWARDS ARE DESIGNED TO BRING YOU CLOSER TO THE CREATIVE EXPERIENCE.

Thank you. Max Hafler.
