MARTINIS ON THE HILL
Directed by Mole Wetherell. Artistic Director of Reckless Sleepers Theatre Company
When you watch a film over and over again you start to notice different things. You see the cracks and the fault lines, moments in the background that suggest stories you weren’t expecting, like clues to a very different puzzle…’
Martinis on the Hill, is a highly idiosyncratic response to watching and re-watching classic horror movie The Birds by Alfred Hitchcock. Dealing with ideas of control and the lack of control, with camera angles and obsessive adherence to rules, the performance offers a deconstruction of the film, and of the process of bringing film and live theatre together.
