ABSURDISM ACTED OUT, WE DIDN’T HAVE TO ‘WAIT FOR GODOT’ BUT MAYBE WE SHOULD RENT-A-FENCE?
“Thank you to Homunculus Theatre Co., Clint Bolster and Lauren who came this week to perform a show that demonstrated the post-WWII Theatre movement known as Absurdism. Both of you are brilliant clowns! Thanks for the black humour and physical gags too.
The Classes 8-12 laughed heartily and enjoyed ‘Mandarin’ becoming part of the show along with Brendan Hook and Jan Baker-Finch who had starring cameos acting out a scene from an Absurdist drama, The Chairs. However it was Kai Haywood-Livingstone, armed with his trusty beanie, who stole the show as he improvised with Lauren a scene from Rhinoceros! Well done Kai!
Then the Class 9s and 10s had a workshop with Louise where we played with Absurdism and experienced both movement and text.
What a great drama-packed day of experiences!”
