Inspired by the work of Swedish Writer and Director Ingmar Bergman and Italian Director Federico Fellini, The Woman on the Chair is a haunting and poetic ensemble piece in true Theatre Re style where movement, music, object manipulation and physical characterisation come together to unravel the fragility of the human psyche. This performance is a collaboration between associate company Theatre Re and our first year rep company.

Femininity & Maleness
What do these words say to us? Is it the same thing for each of us? Have these words always represented the same thing, their meaning passing through us with the unyielding predictability of a Swiss clock? Or might those words bend, distort and spiral around us as we dance from one era to the next?
Join us and follow Orlando, Virginia Woolf and Sally Potter through time to ask the questions: what have we been? And … what are we now?
Clay & Diamonds, the British Film Institute, and National Trust, with funding from Wellcome Trust, present ‘Orlando: The Queer Element’. This live cinema event is inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando and its 1992 film adaptation. Time travelling audiences will wind along Orlando’s journey through gender. As it unfurls across history, we will explore the instability that abounds in those mysteries: ‘sex’ and ‘gender’.
Through theatre, film and insights from the worlds of fashion, endocrinology, history of sexuality and genetics, we will dig around and play with what it means when we call ourselves ‘woman’, ‘man’ and those spaces in between.
The cast of this production will be predominantly made up of our second year two year rep company with the project being directed by Fourth Monkey associate Simone Coxall.This show features in the National Trust Prejudice & Pride theme and is in the BFI Flare programme. It includes performances for schools audiences as well as the general public, tickets for the public performances can be booked via the links below.
