The renowned theatre critic Barbara Heliodora of Brazilian national newspaper, O Globo, has described Billdog (the Brazilian version of Bane) as ‘exceptional’ and praised the original text as ‘A gem…’.
This caps a fine time for Billdog, which has enjoyed great reviews from top theatre critic Lionel Fischer ‘One of the most creative performances of the season… flawless’. It was also named in the top ten plays to see in Rio by national paper ‘VEJA’ and nationally renowned poet Ferreira Gullar described Billdog as ‘An amazing spectacle’. O Globo also named Billdog actor, Gustavo Rodrigues, as ‘Personality of the day’ alongside Brazilian soccer star Fred! The reviews continue to come thick and fast, expect Billdog’s run to be extended into next year. Billdog 2…? Coming soon!
We are thrilled to announce that Bane 1 will be appearing at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2013, for three weeks, at Tuxedo Cat’s Green Room. Bane will be on at 19:15 from Feb 25th – March 5th (Not Wed), and at 21:45 from March 7th – March 17th (Not Wed). Tickets will be available soon.
No, not a new plot line for Bane 4, (although maybe for Bane 5…) but the current live shows are heading to Australia at the beginning of 2013. The tour begins in February at Perth’s PICA performance space and Blue Rooms, as part of their Summer Nights season, on Tuesday the 12th of February. Negotiations are underway for Adelaide and Melbourne, so watch this space for updates on the antipodean adventure! See you in Perth…
“Joe Bone’s performance is phenomenal... The real joy comes from the craftsmanship Bone has put in - there are some dizzying elaborate set pieces here... extremely funny”
British Theatre Guide
“In a brilliant parody of the film noir style, Joe Bone has manufactured a brilliantly funny show where he plays a plethora of varying roles in this dark and inverted story... accompanied to great effect by a constant live soundtrack from Ben Roe”
