Nuffield Theatre - Reckless Sleepers, A House On A Hill
Reckless Sleepers will be making a welcome return to Lancaster University’s Nuffield theatre on Tuesday 10th February with their new show A House On A Hill.
Formed in 1989 Reckless Sleepers have toured extensively throughout the UK and continental Europe with their own brand of devised theatre.
A house on a hill was written in airports, on planes, on the train and in the gaps in between travelling to and from cites, performances, meetings and projects.
A house on a hill in Belgium was presented as a commission for the Limelight Theatre Kortrijk as part of their Anno Twee (2002) celebrations and festival called Buda eye land.
A house on a hill is a monologue featuring Tim Ingram. Written by Artistic Director Mole Wetherell the piece does not rely on the typical elements used in the larger-scale Reckless Sleepers theatre presentations.
A house on a hill concentrates instead on the development of a text and the layers of personal and global narratives within that text.
A house on a hill is a set of inkblot drawings on white card,
It chronicles the beginning of a relationship, holidays in the sun, journeys backwards and forwards and the time in between.
It’s a set of Rorschach Cards.
It’s a chart of every Mediterranean Island.
A house on a hill is a chart of different journeys; the cards show a set of dogs, a set of islands, a set of city plans, a set of aeroplanes.
The lines tell a set of narratives, a set of memories, a set of music, a collection of journeys, a collection of postcards, and a collection of photos stored in a tin.
