Lisa Dwan stars in Not I, Footfalls & Rockaby
Royal Court Theatre and Lisa Dwan production in association with Cusack Projects Ltd present Samuel Beckett's Not I, Footfalls & Rockaby, starring Lisa Dwan and directed by Walter Asmus, performing at the Southbank Centre's Purcell Room in central London from 19 Aug to 30 Aug 2014.
Synopsis: 'Not I is an intense monologue, set in a pitch-black space lit by a single beam of light. A disembodied female mouth floats eight feet above the stage and delivers a stream of consciousness, spoken, as Beckett directed, at the speed of thought.
Footfalls features the distant voice of ‘Mother’ and May who paces back and forth like a metronome, on a bare strip of floor.
Completing the performance is Rockaby, probably the most famous of Beckett's last works. It explores loneliness and features a prematurely old woman dressed in an evening gown, sitting on a wooden rocking chair that appears to rock of its own accord.'
Lisa Dwan brings this one-woman show to the Southbank Centre as part of the 'Festival of Love', having already performed the piece at the Royal Court and Duchess Theatre in the West End.
