Café Villon 29th January 2018 – Save the Date !
Following on from November’s very well attended evening, LEAPA and NWTC are pleased to announce that the next Café Villon – an informal theatre evening – will take place on Monday 29th January. Three works will be presented: a further prize winner from last year’s LEAPA Playwriting Competition as well as extracts from two as yet unperformed plays.
For those new to the concept, Café Villon provides a platform for directors and actors to work on a piece of theatre and put it on in front of a live audience, not at performance level but as a rehearsed play reading with scripts. The actors have an understanding of the text and the action, thus making the experience more satisfying than just a reading.
After each presentation there is a general discussion with the director and actors, enabling feedback and insights – and possibly some reworking. This is followed by a break for drinks and a chat before going on to the next piece.
Café Villon is an informative and entertaining social evening for people interested in theatre to meet in a relaxed and friendly way. Although club evening, it is open to the public so please feel free to bring friends and pass this information on to others who might be interested.
There are plenty of roles to be filled in the planned works, so if anyone would like to participate as an actor (or director), please contact John Brigg (details below).
Date: Monday 29th January 2018 at 7:30 pm
Venue: Foyer Européen, 12 rue Heinrich Heine, L-1720 Luxembourg-Gare (Salle Adenauer)*
More information: John Brigg tel. 691 636 631 / email jbrigg at pt.lu
* Important If you’re intending to come along as “audience”, could you please let Rose Flammant know by 28th January at the latest (Rose at nwtc.lu) so that she can ensure the Foyer doorkeeper will let you in.
The last playreading was "Dance with me" by Alireza Gholamishilsar (drama) in 2017.
Aside from just a lovely excuse to get together for a social evening, play readings are a great way to explore potential plays without any pressure of performance, gain confidence and experience reading the text aloud in a relaxed and informal setting. Members are invited to host play readings. Notifications of play readings will be posted on the website and members will receive a mailshot. Members who have an idea for a play reading and/or would be happy to host one, please contact committee(at)nwtc(dot)luor Valerie Scott (valerie(at)nwtc(dot)lu) who will be happy to chat with you about it.
