Presented by Gur Arie Piepskovitz
Re-Visions is a satirical, meta-theatrical play which investigates the power of role-playing and how one alters reality only by perceiving it differently.
The piece brings into the ring five different personas: The Director set on a noble effort, The Assistant Director insisting on being the love interest, The Actress a love-seeking, struggling soul, The Actor a fresh stud trying to find meaning in all of this, and The Ageing Actor fighting to stay in the spotlight. And what better setting for this fistfight of conflicting desires than the ultimate enemy of reality- a theatre stage.
The goal is clear: The Director decides to recreate the party his Jewish grandparents – uncertain about their future – threw the night before WW2. This is then derailed as his crew has a different idea of how to get this party started. Through fast-paced dialogues, exaggerated characters and banter, the play observes social issues in a provoking manner, incorporating documentary material with illusion.
The ensemble will face the bitter truth about reality, and about the magic of theatre… there is none!
Age restriction: 16+
Ab0ut the artist
Gur Arie Piepskovitz (1986) makes theatre which explores the use of meta-theatrical elements such as role-playing, self-irony and the intertwining of narratives. The multiple plots weave together historical icons and current affairs, giving modern issues a fresh new look.
His works have been presented in Germany and Greece and in London in venues such as: Greenside at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Belgrade Theatre in Coventry, Camden People’s Theatre, Chisenhale Dance Space, Nunnery Gallery, Bomb Factory and ToyNbee studios.
