An original play devised by Acting Now’s acting students, led by Artistic Director Marina Pallares-Elias.
Complicité is a tragicomedy that uses humour as a vehicle to reclaim a role for the elders in our society. The story takes place in a residence for the elderly and explores the dreams and disenchantment of the protagonists whilst denouncing their perceived loneliness and powerlessness. The play has no scenography. We purposely present an austere mise-en-scène so the focus is on the performers. The spaces and objects are recreated through physical theatre.
