A few months ago I had the pleasure of participating in a film shoot for Airport Security with Gruppo Rubato. Now, the videos were in anticipation of the play which opens tonight. They consisted of scenes that were cut from the play but still were worthy of being seen (and used as one of the best marketing tools I've seen for the theatre in a long time).
I've included the video with myself in it at the end of this post.
In the meantime, be sure not to miss the play!
************* Airport Security, the newest play from Ottawa’s Gruppo Rubato opens tonight at the Irving Greenberg Theatre Centre Studio Theatre. Can’t wait that long? Visit our website, www.rubato.ca, to catch our 4-part short film, Airport Security, before we open!
Following the stories of five passengers as they navigate their way through a busy airport, Airport Security poses the question: does increased airport security make us safer, or just make us feel safer? Playing on our insecurities and overconfidence in a system destined to both convolute and demystify air travel, from shuttles to baggage carousels, departures to arrivals, Airport Security scans Canada’s growing obsession with “security”.
Written and directed by Patrick Gauthier (Winner of the 2010 Council for the Arts in Ottawa’s RBC Emerging Artist Award; Rideau Award – Emerging Artist nominee; and director of the multiple award-winning production Countries Shaped Like Stars), the cast features Ottawa actors Simon Bradshaw, Kris Joseph, Catriona Leger, Tania Levy, and Kate Smith.
Set design is by John Doucet; Costume and Prop Design by Sarah Waghorn; Lighting Design by Pierre Ducharme; Sound Design by Kris Joseph; and Original Music by Ann Walton. Production dramaturgy is by Emily Pearlman.
