Orpheus…it has never been so entertaining!

I have written previously about Michael Dean who is a director of independent theatre in Sydney. The magic ingredient in all his plays is imagination.. he has a creative flair which produces astonishing and memorable theatre. His current work is Orpheus at the Blood Moon Theatre in Kings Cross ( inside World Bar). The stage area is quite challenging but he uses it to full advantage. The story is simple- Orpheus travels to the underworld to rescue his beloved Eurydice and having almost secured her safety loses her forever. This retelling is  different and inventive, using dance, music ,singing ,movement and humour to deliver a magnificent piece of theatre. His cast are superb, all versatile and committed to the piece. Any more critique would spoil some of the highlights, but hopefully everyone reading this will be in the audience. It is an exhilarating experience!
