Goodbye Sun And Bear (The Bare Project)

By | Published on Saturday 10 August 2013

Before seeing ‘Goodbye Sun And Bear’ it had been a long time since someone had given me a bubble wand to use as I pleased. This play certainly has a great artistic vision: the minimalist set juxtaposing with the sometimes delightfully flamboyant costuming and make up. Having to pretend that my bubbles were snow was a lovely detail which warmed my heart. The wonderfully crafted props and original live soundtrack, performed by the cast, were also enchanting. However, these artistic fineries cannot fully compensate for the meandering nature of the script, which seemed to lack the sharpness of its surrounding visuals. The absence of clear meaning occasionally left this beautiful play lost in its own oddities.

C nova, until 17 Aug, 1.05pm.
