CapaTaro’s debut performance Glaucoma, a thought-provoking, political and stylized piece, is at The Etcetera Theatre on Camden High Street, Friday 26, Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August at 6.30pm.
“ The disease comes when the mind conforms.”
Set in a dystopia where citizens, entering adulthood, develop a condition of the eyes, which blinds them to the corruption and destruction of their world, Glaucoma tells the story of three young revolutionaries attempting to hold on to their sight, beliefs and humanity in a surreal minimalist prison.
The show is designed to bring light to social and environmental issues of today’s world and awaken the consciousness of its audiences. It is aimed at a younger generation, although the message is inclusive and universal.
The production is devised and written by CapaTaro, an award-winning company of female performer/musicians from East 15’s world performance course, who produce inter-cultural and original, visceral work to challenge passiveness and engineering change.
The production has been created using devising techniques with original writing and music. Drawing on the various world performance styles and techniques explored at East15, CapaTaro embellish their work with influence from forms such as Japanese Butoh, Kandol, Bharatanatyam, Balinese dance-drama, African storytelling and music, mask and puppetry.
