Wednesday 27 September: Medusa in the Thames Tunnel|
It was nice to be back in the Rotherhithe area, made me want to revisit the amazing Sand studio with all its rooms and rooms of costumes, instead just a glimpse from outside. That was one fab open house discovery few years ago and above a library :)
Dinner in the fab Mayflower Pub
27 Degrees Medusa was enjoyable last night. I have been wanting to return in the tunnel and see how it worked as an performance space. The acoustic is fantastic and, well you are in a weird shaft/round tunnel with fascinating history. I am still on the fence regarding immersive theatre, as so often i found them confusing and awkward, at least for this one, being just one round room, it was easier to follow. Some chapters were a bit too abstract, a bit art installation/amateur but others really worked well. I loved their use of lights, especially shadows, some of the dancing and use of space was great with ropes, candles, music, projections. Unfortunately I forgot it was that start of term week when i booked it and a rotten cold so I was glad it was a short play and not sure i was able to give it my full attention.
