This morning I was at Summerhall to see ‘Current Location’ a play by Toshiki Okada, adapted by Fellswoop Theatre.
Telling a story of one villages perhaps impending doom and how the people living within a small community deal with the loss of control and uncertainty in the air. Gripping from the offset the unknowing of who to believe under constant rumours and counter rumours rings true to real life in 2015 and pulls the audience in as if they were involved.
The play is shown in Summerhall’s large and light Dissection Room, with audience members on both sides of the room looking at each other as the actors play in between. This again pulls you in as if you are included in the discussions and decisions made. A rollercoaster of emotions ensues which should not be missed, see the links below to book your place at Current Location.
The sketch above I made immediately after I left the show, imagining the audience looking into the village and the inhabitants lives, worries and thoughts.
