The Untold Season 1: Firecracker & The Moment Before an Explosion

Ovalhouse · 06 JUN - 08 JUN

The first double-bill of FiRST BiTE performances by Ovalhouse Young Associates. What happens in the moment you are separated from someone you love?

Overview

Firecracker
By Helena Morais

Following the murder of Bahian councilwoman Filomena Lopes, her goddaughter Anaíz Mendes is determined for revenge. While training in the refuge of a capoeira group she discovers the legacy of Queen Njinga and a new family. But does she really know who her enemy is?

The Moment Before an Explosion
By Sera Mustafa

A&B are about to start the rest of their lives together. Woman 1&2 have just met and the spark is unavoidable. Mum & Son are drifting further away from each other with every passing day. Three relationships, all irrevocably connected, on the verge of both flourishing and shattering. The play explores the transition between the life and death of a relationship, and what happens in the moment you are separated from someone you love. Ideas of the multiverse and quantum physics provoke the question- is their love so strong that it can exist in an alternative universe if it can't exist in this one?
