Not I: Floating above the stage in a near pitch-black void, a disembodied mouth delivers a stream of consciousness at speed, capturing the despair of an outcast caught in a speechless existence.
Footfalls: Pacing back and forth like a metronome outside her dying mother’s room, May is trapped in a moment of time, tormented by some ‘shudder of her mind’.
Rockaby: Dressed in an evening gown, a prematurely aged woman sits in a chair that appears to rock of its own accord. Recounting moments from her past, she slowly withdraws from the world.
‘Like nothing else in theatre’ (Times), the short plays transport audiences to a strangely beautiful, unsettling space where death and decay are never far away. Directed by Beckett’s long-time collaborator Walter Asmus, Dwan makes the triple bill her own in a virtuosic performance that is chilling and absorbing in equal parts.
