The last two weeks have been explosive. We had the pleasure to speak with Shakespeare himself (ok, Andrew Foster), who shared some highlights and moments of amusement from the season thus far.
One night… when Tai Berdinner-Blades who plays Judith, Shakespeare’s daughter, was looking for more laundry to fill her basket, she accidently took Shakespeare’s Elizabethan underpants, leaving poor Shag in quite a precarious situation, come the time he had to ‘bare all’.
The Queen’s birthday weekend saw floods of high school students from all over the country in for sell out shows, as they were in town to compete in the Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival. Andrew shared how “performing those shows felt like being rockstars”. The crowds were SO into it, there was amazing audience interaction, explosive laughter and standing ovations. But every night has seen new freshness and life to the shows – which Andrew says is what makes EQUIVOCATION so exciting, the adaptive style of theatre. Actors love nothing more than finding new ways to play, explore and connect with their characters, audience, the story, and each other.
Have you heard… There’s a special treat to be had when you’re in for the show too – Garage Project, our local Aro Street Brewery, have put a bit of art into their beer and beer into the arts, by creating for us our very own show beer – Burning Globe – It’ll bring the house down! Make sure you taste this fine drop, available at Encore during the season of EQUIVCOCATION.
