Robertson’s Crusoe: No Man Is An Island…
Running time: approximately 60 minutes Suitable for 14+ Warning: this production contains some adult content Company Gavin Robertson and Barnsley Civic Theatre, in association with makin projects and Lakeside Arts Centre presents: Robertson’s Crusoe: No Man Is An Island… “New beginnings. The end of one thing is the start of another, that’s all. And sometimes, even with relationships, you need ‘a temporary ceasing of being’. It’s ok to be on your own. Well it is, for me. For now.” This unique solo show creates an urban and gritty world where a Hit Man, an Alzheimer’s sufferer and a ‘single white male’ share their thoughts and theories on being alone - interwoven with the classic ‘Crusoe’ story and an exploration of cosmology. An extraordinary blend of precise physicality and bold images, ‘Robertson’s Crusoe’ is atmospheric and cinematic – minimum set, maximum effect, supported by an originally composed evocative underscore. Gavin Robertson performs with a subtle conviction that is compelling to watch... The Guardian Careful observation and sheer skill!
