DP Theatre Category 1, 2 & 3

Masterclasses

Teachers attending will have one 90-minute master class from a range of traditions including Butoh, Bunraku and Musical Theatre.


Theatre

All participants will attend two professional theatre performances.
The Play That Goes Wrong at the Lyceum Theatre. Winner of the Olivier Award for BEST NEW COMEDY, The Play That Goes Wrong is a classic murder mystery chock-full of mishaps and more madcap mania than a Monty Python marathon! Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can’t play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it’s bedlam beyond Broadway’s wildest nightmare and “A RIOTOUS EXPLOSION OF COMEDY!” (The Daily Beast)

Vangeline Theatre presents: Butoh Beethoven: Eclipse with Vangeline at the Theatre for the New City, (Johnson Theatre). A 60-minute Butoh solo conceived, choreographed and performed by New York Butoh star Vangeline, conjuring the ghosts of two passionate giants — Tatsumi Hijikata, founder of Butoh, and composer Ludwig van Beethoven in this hypnotic, electrifying and award-winning solo performance. Butoh Beethoven: Eclipse (Admiring Tatsumi Hijikata), is a solo piece that illuminates the darkness of Butoh with the addition of cutting edge lighting technologies such as the futuristic creations of European designer Tilen Sepič and fiber optic costume by the French company Lumigram. After touring this show for the past two years and receiving four stars at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, five stars at Copenhagen Stage Festival and critical acclaim in New York and the United States, Vangeline shines a new light on Butoh and will transport audiences.
