Se­crets in com­mon

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS - Leah Roberts

EX­PRESS­ING that all peo­ple have some­thing in com­mon is just one as­pect of the show Three Se­crets, which will open at PS Art Space on Fri­day June 15.

Writer and di­rec­tor Bello Benis­chauer said he wanted to ex­plore cul­tural di­ver­sity and com­mon­al­ity of peo­ple.

“I thought about all this mad­ness and sad­ness of the peo­ple on this planet, so I cre­ated three char­ac­ters who would ad­dress that and wove them into one play,” he said.

“Three char­ac­ters touch on is­sues con­cern­ing their gen­der, ex­press­ing how they deal with pain, self-doubts and fragility caused by so­ci­etal au­di­ence would get a dif­fer­ent story to take home with them.

“We cre­ate an im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence; we don’t come with a con­clu­sive mes­sage, we try to make the au­di­ence re­think their own be­hav­iours to­wards them­selves as well as oth­ers,” he said.

The Bea­cons­field resident said he wanted peo­ple to sit back and let it all sink in.

“Ev­ery­one ex­pe­ri­ences some­thing dif­fer­ent; some may lis­ten more to the spo­ken word, the sound of the lan­guages, oth­ers may im­merse them­selves in the sound­scape, the vi­su­als or the whole set­ting,” he said.
