CONCERTO DE MIRAGE
Gap II & III Production
7 pm May 13 – 15, 2021
The Gap 2 and 3 students, directed by Ellis Pearson. present a fascinating, funny and touching exploration of humanity through the expressive mask.
Aren’t we all deep down inside just loveable twits?
Take a break from the worries of the world and spend an evening with seven lovable twits and honour the lovable twit within yourself.
In Concerto De Mirage, seven strangers, all from vastly different walks of life, gather to experience a prestigious music concert.
But these seven characters embody the most conflicting of human inclinations and impulses and, when all are obligated to follow cultured etiquette and meet social expectations, their deep, dark unfulfilled needs start to emerge and collide, as their antics instead take centre stage.
Hiding behind modesty is arrogance, hiding behind shame is pride and hiding behind compassion is insensitivity. Watch closely as these lovable characters navigate the confusion of what it means to be human.
Roald Dahl writes that “A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
Concerto De Mirage transcends spoken language through the magic of the expressive mask to hold up a mirror to our unspoken antisocial thoughts and desires in order to celebrate the humour in being human.
