Savage Messiah: Ken Russell / Ken and Aria
« Last post by Iain Fisher on November 21, 2021, 10:21:45 PM »
An interesting short insight into how Ken filmed Aria.  It is mainly Don Boyd, producer of Aria as Ken did not seem in the best of health.

Sarah Kane discussion / Rebecca Watson Little Scratch
« Last post by Iain Fisher on November 13, 2021, 07:55:02 PM »
Hamptead Theatre in London present a play based on Rebecca Watson's Little Scratch. "Blisteringly honest and unflinchingly intimate, Rebecca Watson’s debut novel is astonishing – a moment by moment account of a day in the life of a young woman".

On the play "Performed by four actors, each voicing quicksilver slivers of the woman’s consciousness, it has a flavour of Sarah Kane’s later work"  The actors  stand behind microphones on a bare black stage.



The review is by Sam Marlowe in The I-newspaper, 12 Nov 2021

Athol Fugard discussion / "I sing for beloved Fountain actor Adolphus Ward"
« Last post by Iain Fisher on November 09, 2021, 06:24:20 PM »
Adolphus Ward who played in Fugard's Coming Home and The Train Driver has passed away aged 88.  There is a moving tribute by Stephen Sachs, Artistic Director of the Fountain Theatre "In Fugard’s The Train Driver, he played a gravedigger overseeing a bleak South African burial site for the unknown and unwanted, who “puts the nameless ones in the grave.” I’ll never forget the moment in the play when Adolphus, as the gravedigger, sang a Xhosa lullaby to the souls in the ground who were “sleeping.” The song floated from Adolphus like smoke on the night air. Haunting, beautiful, quietly transcendent".
