147 Questions About Love (Volcano Theatre)

By | Published on Monday 18 August 2014

One Show, 147 questions; some incredibly thought provoking, some vastly simple. ‘147 Questions’ was created by and stars performers Paul Davies and Catherine Bennett and was inspired by the book ‘The Interrogative Mood,’ a book which exclusively lists and proposes endless questions. This two person piece incorporates dialogue, audience participation and movement. While Paul asks the audience question after question, Catherine performs an accordant dance move. Despite Catherine’s obvious capabilities, I felt she did not display any impressive choreography and it would have been preferable to hear more insightful and intellectual questions from Paul. A creative and original idea for a production that needs to be developed more fully.

The Dance Base, until 16 Aug.
