Beast by Elena Bolster at White Bear Theatre
UNTitled Theatre presents Beast by Elena Bolster, at the White Bear Theatre, a fringe venue in Kennington, south London, from 29 May to 17 June 2012.
Directed by Natasha Pryce, cast features Mel Oskar, Kieron Jecchinis.
He is an ageing artist. She is a young prostitute. What starts as a drunken exchange, a night of paid-for fantasy, turns into a lilting, lusting love-story.
Switching between lyrical, swaying verse and terse dialogue, Beast mixes intimate live performances and voice-overs, with a haunting soundscape and strange, evocative flickering film footage to create the passionate and vulnerable world of fated lovers.
It is designed by Alistair Turner, lighting by Matt O’Leary.
