Can I Fit Into This?
A New play by Rhythm Room
This new piece of work has been devised by the company and has come out of extensive work on the Myth of Baba Yaga and Vasilisa the Brave. In the context of CAN I FIT INTO THIS?The Myth of Baba Yaga represents support, strength and the willingness to look in the mirror at the long reflection of oneself and ask the questions: Can I fit into this? Where do I fit into this? What do I have to say for myself? What do I want to say? How do I want to be heard? Will anybody listen when I speak? Does my voice carry any weight or is it floating on the wind?
We are looking at the notion of being ‘boxed off’ and how the stories of the company may challenge the way in which the audience puts itself into a box, through its thoughts and preconceptions. We are wondering if our stories are all that different from yours or do they reflect the struggle and desire of all human beings to be seen, heard, accepted and valued for who they are?
Through the support of the group and the facilitation process the actors have shared their stories and created a landscape for their stories to live, breathe and speak for themselves. You are invited to witness their stories at Smock Alley Theatre on the 25th and 26th of July at 8pm
