Recorded at the Lowry in Manchester last year this is a high quality rendering of the fantastic play written by Andrew Macmillan.
The self that feels that it is not the self, the self that feels somehow estranged from an idealised version of the self.
In the world of social media; the selfie, the avatar, the airbrushed image, who are we really?
Enjoy Dorian, presented here in three parts, for ease of watching:
"The idealised male body has become bigger, bulkier and harder to achieve. So what drives a generation of young men to the all-consuming, often dangerous pursuit of perfection?"
Sirin Kale, The Guardian
Proper Job and Helen Mort’s play that began touring in the week of the Harvey Weinstein affair and to our knowledge prefigured any of the Medusa myth revisions following #metoo. A startling, atmospheric, almost dreamlike journey that tells the story of how Medusa became Medusa.
The recording is a high quality audio of the live play which we have edited into a tight 40 minute structure.
It begins in the virtual world as three men are waiting to see the legend that is Medusa. The story then shifts to the story of her beginning and her fateful meeting with Poseidon who tells his own side of the story to a live TV audience. We then learn the consequences of Medusa meeting... as the story unfolds.
Again, as with Nosferatu this is best listened to with headphones or in a quiet room.
The play contains distressing material and graphic imagery related to assault and is unsuitable for children.
A feast for the Ears! Best listened to with headphones this is an original recording of Ian McMillan’s fantastic text with music by Roddy B. Immersive and creepy, the play is a one hour journey into night as three sailors wrestle with their beliefs and fears and try to confront the unknown presence stalking their boat. Perfect for lockdown contemplation. Enjoy this exciting release.
Music Roddy B / Libretto Ian Mcmillan / Cello Ellen Jordan
A crew of sailors journey from Varna to Whitby with a mysterious unknown cargo - a cargo that holds the key to unlocking the terror that lurks within our unconscious minds.
