Join us for a special rehearsed reading of There are Trees that are Dancers by Monica Raszewski, a winning script from the R.E. Ross Trust Playwrights’ Script Development Awards 2012.
Vera is a writer who became blind in her youth. She visits Hilda, an elderly and little known artist, to interview her for a book she wants to write. Tensions spiral and the more Vera tries to pin her subject down, the more impossible the interview becomes. Eventually the two women find themselves moving towards an increasingly private, strange and at times dangerous space where each woman becomes aware of her interdependence with the other and lines of identity blur.
There are Trees that are Dancers is an exploration of intimacy and the aspects of a person’s life that are elusive and ambiguous. For this rehearsed reading, physical theatre advice has been provided by Adam Pierzchalski.
Directed by Elaine Hudson, There are Trees that are Dancers will be read by Eloise Oxer and Debra Lawrance.
