FLUXORAMA @ Clifftown Theatre
Sat 24 Jan
FLUXORAMA is actually 3 monologues where Jô Bilac shows 3 characters on the edge, who are going through a transcendental moment in their lives. The writing has a lot of stream of conscience and resembles Beckett plays like Happy days. FLUXORAMA is very exciting writing. In this play Bilac is paying homage to a Brazilian style of poetry developed in the 50’s called Poesia Concreta.
While Bilac’s work can be seen constantly in the theatres of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, this is Bilac’s first play staged in the UK. Winner of several acclaimed prizes FLUXOMRAMA is comprised of 3 monologues by 3 characters on the edge and each going through a transcendental moment in their lives.
In Amanda a WOMAN loses all her senses, one by one.
In Luis Henrique a man is immobilised in his destroyed car after a crash.
In Valquiria a woman is in the middle of a MARATHON.
Dende Collective’s Artistic Director directed Daisy Morris in Amanda and Alice Malin directed the Jamie Fairhurst in Luis Henrique and Charlotte Mulliner in Valquiria.
FLUXORAMA was performed first in RED LIKE EMBERS – a season of Brazilian contemporary short plays performed at Theatre 503 in London in October 2014 over a week. The event was produced by Theatre 503 and CAL.
Dende Collective is producing FLUXORAMA at the Clifftown Theatre in Southend where it will be showed with its 3 parts being presented in the order for the first time in the UK, as it was written by Jô Bilac.
