Reworked and developed since Inferno’s critically acclaimed debut performance; Craft Theatre is showing this A thrilling reworking of Inferno.
Craft Theatre will be presenting a new, fearless and physical modern telling of Dante Alighieri’s timeless classic, Inferno. Featuring Craft’s unique, soul-baring and thought- provoking performance style, this “muscular and intense” (Time Out) production will show the audience the circles of hell and moral crises we all face in our daily lives.
Craft Theatre use exhaustion, cognitive neuroscience, sociology and devising techniques to create work that focuses on emotional authenticity and depth – keeping the actor present, and telling stories with integrity. Their devising process is physical, psychological and rigorous, with a final result that is “a gut wrenching pummel to the core base, primal senses of human emotion” (Bargain Theatreland).
The production is directed by Rocky Rodriguez Jr, resident artist at the Rag Factory and curator of their theatre program, designed to offer young companies a no-risk performance space. In accordance with Equity guidelines, Craft Theatre intend to pay performers on this production the minimum wage for actors.
Dante’s Inferno is at Hive Dalston from September 24th to October 10th 2015. Tickets cost £10. Book online at craft-theatre.com.
