GRAPHITE & C.
, a new original play written by
An original play written by Cornwall based Austrian writer Evelyn Holloway and directed by Italian Media Artist and Performer Dhyano.
Attracted by the conversation among ‘Three Spotlights’, ‘Actor and Actress’ (Pep Mogas and Kerry Tomlins), just by chance discover a stage and You, just by chance, are there, among the audience. Random words are falling from the sky. As if by magic, out of a drawing, 'Graphite' appears on stage and the adventure begins. A journey towards the source of creativity itself exploring places where languages are taking shape and shapes are given words, while trying to make sense of how coincidences from the past are moulding our present in the intricate connection of relationships.
Graphite & Co is a piece of contemporary multi-media theatre, that with the help of video, sound and performance art, reveals the complex wordsmithing work behind the ancient art of making Poetry.
Anna Liddell as 'Graphite',
Kerry Tomlins as 'Actress'
Pep Mogas as 'Actor'
Dhyano as 'director' and...
light and sound technician.
It is important to highlight the fact that the play was co-directed by all performers
which have worked together as a team in a series of workshops
throughout August 2019 in St.Ives at the Theatre Upstairs,
generously made available by The St.Ives Arts Club.
The writer Evelyn Holloway was not involved in the process apart from few
suggestions in the final stage of preparation. She gave Dhyano and the
performers complete trust and creative license.
The team also worked together in the stage-design and choreography.
