The Remnants – Threadbare

By | Published on Friday 28 August 2015

The Remnants

The continuation from The Remnants: As Thyself. Isla Van Tricht revisits her first heartbreak through various fictional characters in this postdramatic and chronologically jumbled romance. It’s narrated by both her heart and mind, which are symbiotically, represented as the characters Archimedes and Phoenix, as we view the turmoil and confusion that came with the love that was lost in ‘As Thyself’. ‘Threadbare’, written a few years later, explores the notions of what it is to be a storyteller. This is a play in its own right and can be viewed as an individual piece, however it is best viewed with its prequel, as it would feel less full as an independent piece.

C nova, until 31 Aug.
