RADAR PERFORMANCE: Solfatara

Sold out

Presented by ATRESBANDES in association with the Bush Theatre as part of RADAR 2013

What happens when your fear comes round for dinner, and your deepest, darkest thoughts refuse to lie low?

Solfatara [def]: openings in volcanic terrain that emit hot, sulphurous gases. We are full of these geological phenomena, orifices that allow our insides to surface.

Witty, fast paced and hilarious, a young couple’s frustrations explode with catastrophic honesty as a masked figure dares them to voice their true feelings.

Performed in Spanish with English surtitles, the translation takes on a subversive life of its own.
