Orfius

Orfius

2006

At the invitation to work with Third World Bunfight under direction of Brett Bailey I conducted the movement direction. Brett works with his actors in ways that shift their own opinions about themselves. I saw this happening as part of the rehearsals.

Orfius took place in the veld at the Spier Estate. The stage was erected next to a farm dam, one of many. The other dams were empty and were used as the underworld of the play. The audience moved through territories, vastly different from another during the night, each with a torch.

Every actor should find an opportunity to work with Brett Bailey. There is a mission to get somewhere, no-one knows where that is, but you arrive all the time.
