BEFORE / AFTER @ AADA
Sydney, New South Wales
Written by Roland Schimmelpfennig
Directed by Andrew Davidson
Conceived, Designed, Performed and Produced by the Bachelor of Performance Graduating Company 2012
Before / After is an epic of contemporary German theatre. 51 moments in the lives of others, sealed in a time capsule for our own time. Suddenly, splinters of story flash into life as more than 30 characters converge like buds in a bouquet. Each is found pressed between pages of a long-forgotten book dated '2012'.
The Graduating Company balances acting craft onstage with theatre-making roles offstage. In cinematic style, they sharpen our eyes and free our imaginations to ask: What took place after Before and before After? Join them as they explore the human capacity for the sensual, the scientific, the silly, and the sublime,
What we call the beginning is often the end.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
The end is where we start from.
T. S. Eliot
