The Sydney University Dramatic Society Presents: Beat
Beat: (noun) the smallest unit of action in a scene; a shift in the action, thought, or emotion of the actor(s).
Beat: (noun) the basic unit of time in music, the pulse (regularly repeating event), of the mensural level.
Beat is a show served in two parts, these parts playing consecutively over two weeks.
Part 1 explores silence as an essential element of drama and a by-product of human communication - does silence speak louder than words? How do humans communicate and miscommunicate? Does silence carry across culture?
Part 1 features:
Anja Bless (dir.), Ang Collins (dir.), Bianca Farmakis (dir.), Elijah Fink (dir.), Gabe Gregory, Bronwyn Hicks, Jack Kennare, Angela Lin (dir.), Maggie Liuzzi, Laura McInnes, Meg McLellan (dir.), Lauren McNaught, Elizabeth Milstead, Riley Nolan (dir.), Helena Parker, Max Peacock, Jean Pham, Issy Phillips (dir.), Jimmy Pucci (dir.), Tushar Prasad, Perri Roach (dir.), Michael Sun, Emma Webb, Anna Williamson, Jess Zlotnick (dir.), Noa Zulman
Part 2 is a cacophony of noise: boisterous, rude, fantastic. Noise and sound are inherent to everyday life - it exhausts and invigorates.
