Theatre At Home | December

At SAF this year, apart from the established and more formal theatre venues, we wish to bring theatre into the homes of individuals who are as passionate about this art form as the artist themselves. We want to bring these works to an intimate environment, where the informality and warmth of a lived space lends its own distinctive character and experiential qualities to the performance. These performances will take place for small audiences through October and November, with the following production to take place during the Festival in December.

Sonnets c. 2018 is a devised, bilingual, site-specific performance, using Shakespeare’s sonnets as a starting point. The play is an attempt to reclaim the sonnets and to reinvent them, to account not just for contemporary sensibilities and notions of sexuality and gender but also to place them firmly in the here and now, of the grizzly urban life of bustling metropolises. The sonnets were written about four hundred and twenty years ago.
