Promotional picture for Introspection

Introspection

Morosophy Theatre Company

Introspection is a unique approach to storytelling, allowing audiences to create their own narrative in their mind with the assistance of audio, soundscape and one nameless performer, guiding the audience, raising questions such as: 'How do we perceive the world?', 'How do we perceive ourselves?', and 'how do our perceptions change, while our eyes remain the same?' This experience allows audiences to create a stage in their minds, using their senses to experience their own unique performance. The audience's unique experience is a consequence of their own actions, perceptions and the aesthetics of interaction.

Threesome

Almost Professional

Alex and Eve are just like any dysfunctional millennials trying to survive in today’s world. Eve is tired of the misogyny she has to endure in everyday life and Alex... well, Alex just wants to watch TV. In order to afford the rent, they need to interview a potential flat mate. After a string of unsuccessful applicants, mostly due to Alex’s strong opinions and inability to keep any of his thoughts to himself, they meet Evan. The challenge presents itself: Alex has to keep his opinions to himself and Eve needs to try and control her libido. What starts off as a very awkward encounter, quickly develops into a series of unexpected stories and interactions that might just be what each of these three individuals need. Told from the point of view of a real stuttering person, 'Threesome' blends humour, trauma and overall far-fetched themes and opinions that wouldn’t usually work (but do).

"6 women from across the UK and 10 hours of virtual rehearsal bring you She(me): Reclaiming Shame, an experiment in building shame resilience through devised, digital performance art. The cast confronts the unspoken and the uncomfortable with care, humor and creativity in this original new work. Through a series of workshops the cast explored their personal relationships with shame, as it intersects with female identity. Filmed in their homes and presented through the familiar lens of zoom, the company courageously stages their discoveries for all to see.
