Liverpool’s renowned Tmesis Theatre have announced a new production for Winter 2015 – and it’s all about love – wanting it, having it, keeping it and losing it.
That’s Amore will open at the Unity Theatre, Liverpool, on Wednesday 28th January before touring to a further six venues until Friday, 27th February, 2015. The 10-date tour will also include Norwich, Ormskirk, Bury, Halifax, Runcorn and Barnsley.
That’s Amore is a hilarious, fast-paced, passionate and emotional piece of physical theatre which explores the vast world and culture of romantic love – from chance encounters to hidden desires, and emotional extremes to the science of romance. The piece discovers the flesh and philosophy behind what makes our hearts beat faster. It is directed by Elinor Randle and will feature a cast of four – Jennifer Essex, Adam Davies, Eleni Edipidi and Ross McCall.
Artistic Director Elinor Randle said: “I am very excited to step away from performing and to direct the new Tmesis piece with four hugely talented performers and a bigger and more visual new direction. The show has an amazing creative team and is a crazy, funny, emotional rollercoaster of a piece, which explores what we all want in the end, to be loved. We want audiences to be caught up in the moment, swept away with the excitement, confusion and agony of romance. To recognise how love strips us of our dignity and just how funny it all really is.”
The play will feature familiar love songs including Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart; A-ha’s Take On Me; Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares To You; George Michael’s Careless Whisper, Leonard Cohen’s Take This Waltz and, of course, the title name, That’s Amore by Dean Martin.
