Ranters

Ranters Theater
Holiday

“An extraordinary piece of theatre, a subsuming into another place that send the audience into the night refreshed an afloat on a sea of calm.” – Emer O’Kelly, Irish Independent

Holiday is a gentle provocation. In a moment of relaxation and quite reflection two men unwittingly engage. Spontaneous, unaffected and thrillingly real, innocent discussion becomes an exploration of private fantasy, hidden anxiety, personal mythology, and the most inexplicable behavior. From the bar to the chaise lounge, Holiday is the journey of man’s simple complexities, set within a sparingly elegant design, complimented a contemporary baroque musical score sampling Vivaldi, Corelli and Albinoni.

Concept and Direction by Adriano Cortese. Text by Raimondo Cortese. Sound Design & Operation by David Franzke. Lighting Design by Niklas Pajanti. Set (adapted from original design) by Anna Tregloan
Performed and Co-devised by Paul Lum and Patrick Moffatt. Company Manager Alison Halit.

Established in 1994, Ranters consists of a writer, director, general manager and ensemble of actors committed to creating original, contemporary, theatre that is raw and immediate. Ranters is a small, artistically driven theatre company that makes highly distinctive original work. Ranters is one of only a few companies world wide that works in a minimalist, non representational theatre genre, creating work that is finely crafted through extensive rehearsal processes. The company has a highly successful production and on-selling history.

Over the past 16 years Ranters has consistently received critical acclaim in Australia and abroad. At the company’s core is an uncompromised commitment to Ranters’ artistic vision. The company has twelve productions in repertoire, has been programmed in twelve international arts festivals and has toured seven countries worldwide.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body and by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria and by Arts House through the City of Melbourne and Arts Victoria.
