Sebald-Based Play to Open Autumn 2008
If you live anywhere near Swansea (birthplace of Dylan Thomas), you can look forward to i-witness, a new play based on the writings of W.G. Sebald, which will be performed at the Volcano Theatre Company sometime this fall.
Three women and three men present six short chapters, each with its own style and characters. Join their haunted tour through strange and ordinary landscapes, following clues, signs and connections laid down in their individual and shared histories. A search for beauty in the shadow of barbarism. i-witness is brutal, meditative, and darkly funny theatre that explores what it means to live in a world full of the echoes and whisperings of the past.
