What do you get when you combine an inability to move with physical theatre? In the Reds production of Paint the Town.
A combination of physical movement and projections transport the audience to a supermarket, a train platform, a trendy bar and a hospital. Along the way we meet a number of characters and are taught some harsh facts about the world we live in.
While the performers in this show work their hardest to give these characters life using only their bodies, none of them are particularly skilled movers. In reality, it becomes too difficult to pay attention to the production itself because the sheer awkwardness and lack of grace on stage becomes highly distracting. This is not to say they are bad actors. For all one knows, they may excel with any given play that has dialogue. Lets hope they prove this point with their next show.
