Some Thing New (Lion Theatre Company)

Something New

Intentionally blurring the lines between art, artist and audience, this show will leave you thinking about the big artistic debates of the day. You may come with the expectation of sitting back watching passively, but Lion Theatre Company has different intentions. You’ll be participating in a staged “creative workshop”, led by the actors who each play a different type of artist, all hoping to become successful. The continual squabbling of these “artists” seems to suggest that truly original or objectively inspiring art cannot be produced in the modern age, due to the splintered nature of the collective consciousness. ‘Some Thing New’ poses some interesting questions, but fails to deliver any insightful answers.

C Nova, until 22 Aug.
