As promised in my LAST POST, i went to explore the theatre at the end of One Way Street. And i was not disappointed. It is so totally different from everything i have ever seen before.
Here is a picture of the Theatre Owners.
Actualy it is really hard to meet them ( i read that in a little tourist guide of which i will make a downloadable version for you, soon) and there was no one around who i could have asked. This is the strange thing about my imaginary world. It is almost empty so far. But i even managed to convince the strange couple to do a very short interview with me.
What exactly do you do as theater directors? What are your key responsibilities?
We play God. So if you read the opening of Genesis, it pretty much describes our job. We make everything happen. However, it usually takes more than one week.
Complete this sentence: At heart I’m just a frustrated …
What’s the greatest threat to theatre?
A lack of imagination.
End of interview. They were in a hurry because the show was starting soon and they had to prepare everything. Here is another picture of them. They used to do magic shows together.
Another strange thing. Show was about to start but still there was no audience anywhere. I am wondering what kind of theatre this could be and what kind of show. Thinking about weird shows and audience, one of my favourite animated movies has both in it. HERE is the link that will guide you directly to that little movie on vimeo.
But before you are allowed to enter the main house you have to get past the Gatekeeper. He is sitting in front of the house doing Tarot Sessions. The funny thing is though, that what he sees in the cards either is good enough for letting you pass or it is not. A picture of the Gatekeeper and his cards (if you think the cards are beautiful. He got them HERE! )
I was lucky enough to get past him and visit the main Theatre House. What i saw there is just too big for this Blog and i will show you on Sunday. Show? Yes, i’ll try and make a video because you wouldn’t believe without seeing it for yourself.
But here is a picture of the Ticket Office. These three creatures really reminded me of the three witches in Macbeth. I had the feeling that they were telling me things about my future. But can it be true that i will be the President of the United States of America???
