A Supple Booty

(The Kreutzer Sonata)

by Mark Wilson,Tobias Manderson-Galvin & Kerith Manderson-Galvin,
after Wikipedia, after Tolstoy, after seeing the State Theatre version

The audience were naked. The technician was naked. The cast were naked. Not some sort of figurative naked but in fact not wearing any clothes, though Tobias had a belt, tie, shoes and suspenders on, Kerith brushed her hair and Mark, no Mark was definitely naked.

A tale of propaganda, juvenilism and referencing, Tolstoy’s novella provides rich pickings for a starkers one-man+no women+hidden musician/projectionist show.

An extraordinary examination of the extremities of the human psyche and a critical assault on the State Theatre Company of South Australia’s production of a similar name, The Kreutzer Sonata was also virtuosic story-telling of immense power and intensity. And like the STCSA show claimed it too was a literary and live music feast, including Beethoven’s famous Violin Sonata No 9 but mainly just excerpts from Chris Brown and Rhianna tracks.
