I don’t think there’s anything more captivating than people’s real stories. I love a good story. Guy Dartnell delivered it. It wasn’t complicated. It wasn’t outrageous. It was clear, real, and from the heart. The story itself was complimented by a sparse set (one chair) and carefully designed lighting. My favorite moment was a bed created by a rectangle of light hitting the back wall of the stage. Guy, standing in the light, cosied up vertically as if under the covers. At another moment, Guy pulls out a map of Northern France from his pocket, just to show us where he’s headed on his journey. It was so relaxing and so engaging to watch such a lo-fi work of performance art. Paper and light technology. That’s my speed.
