The Art Of Catastrophe
Thu 01 Jan 1970
6 & 8pm
The Art Of Catastrophe is a solo performance about a womans discovery that everything she thought was important, suddenly no longer is. A poignant, darkly funny and achingly familiar tale with a cast of vibrantly rendered and exquisitely performed interconnected characters. This is a theatrical work of rich imaginative scope, powerful emotional impact and playful intelligence.
Loosely inspired by the themes in Roland Barthes A Lovers Discourse, The Art Of Catastrophe digs its fingers into the uncomfortable territory between romantic love and self delusional disaster. Created by performer Rachel Blackman and director Emma Roberts with a beautiful lighting design by Geoff Hense, The Art of Catastrophe was developed by the Nightingale, Brighton and further developed with assistance from Arts Council England as one part of Stillpoints Triptych – Three Attempts at Love.
‘A theatre maker of exceptional heart and skill. Deft, detailed theatre for the brain and heart
A stunningly well-crafted play. Witty, daring, intelligent and crackling with physical and emotional literacy.

A performance so open and honest it leaves a lump in the throat… an all round beautiful piece of theatre
