Intimacy
Ranters Theatre (Australia)

Based on a series of real, intimate and diverse conversations with strangers, Intimacy gives a candid and sometimes disquieting portrait of everyday life where personal anxieties are never far from the surface.

How much of ourselves are we prepared to show? Why is it sometimes easier to be honest with a total stranger than with someone we know? Is this really honesty or just another performance?

Directed, Written and Performed by Adriano Cortese
Written and Performed by Beth Buchanan, Patrick Moffatt
Written by Raimondo Cortese, Paul Lum
Sound Design by David Franzke
Based on Set Design by Anna Tregloan
Based on Lighting Design by Niklas Pajanti
Video by Keri Light
Beth’s Dance Choreography by Alison Halit

“A presentation of such a high standard, both psychologically and theatrically. With depth and subtle manner of acting rarely seen…” – Noorderzon Theatre Blog

65 minutes running time

Ranters Theatre is a performance group based in Melbourne, Australia. Formed in 1994, we make original work that responds to the social and psychological contexts of everyday life. We are interested in the ordinary rituals of day-to-day living and the strange personal details that lie beneath the skin of social convention.

New Ohio Theatre is a two-time OBIE Award-winning performance venue that serves the vast independent theatre community of New York and the adventurous audiences who love them. As a small, downtown, artist-run organization (with a 20+ year history as a beacon for bold and inventive work), we know the challenges and rewards of producing and presenting alternative, non-commercial theatre. In any given year, there are over 500 independent theatre companies working for opportunities to develop and present their work. We believe the best of this community operates at the core of the contemporary aesthetic conversation (in terms of both content and form) and acts collectively to expand the boundaries of the public imagination. From our new home on Christopher Street, we aim to establish a professional, high-profile platform that reestablishes the West Village as a destination for mature, ridiculous, engaged, irreverent, gut-wrenching, frivolous, sophisticated, foolish, and profound theatrical endeavors. Follow us online at newohiotheatre.org and on Twitter at @NewOhioTheatre.

The New Ohio Theatre is located in Greenwich Village, Manhattan and is accessible by the 1, A, C, E, B, D, F, M subways. This famous region on the west side of Manhattan is home to Washington Square Park, New York University, Cooper Union, St. Marks Place and a host of independent film houses and Off-Broadway theaters. The New Ohio Theater sits one block from Hudson River Park, close to Hudson Street where audiences can pick from a plethora of restaurants scattered between the New Ohio and Bleecker Street. Christopher Park is three blocks from the theater, surrounded by a variety of bars hosting live music every evening.

 

Aside from untold numbers of shopping and dining options, there are plenty of neighborly activities…for recreation-seekers without memberships to the area’s multiple gyms, the Hudson River and its well-traveled waterside trails are a short walk away. – The New York Times
