Ships Of Sand (Lyrebird Theatre Company)

By | Published on Monday 22 August 2011

A seductively soft droning greets the audience as they take their seats in anticipation of this production. An oppressive atmosphere is immediately made apparent owing to the simplistic costume and rhythmic sound as the eight-strong cast portray the monotony of society, one you couldn’t blame anyone for trying to escape. Thus the premise for ‘Ships of Sand’ is set; a fantastical journey exploring our fantasies and desire to reach the impossible. This is superbly achieved through the effective use of the human body to create numerous concepts. The hard work and effort by this small company is exceedingly evident, and although at times the plot may seem loose, just watching these performers is a feast for the eyes.

Venue 13, Aug 5 – 27 (not 15), times vary, £3.00 – £6.00, fpp296.
