Max Dix, Zero to Six (12-19 April 2008)

Five Monologues

The evening begins with a series of five newly written monologues dealing with the themes of love, parents, pets, death, writing conferences and bad kisses.  Alternatively melancholic, humorous, compassionate and graphic, they are unsentimental confrontations with the passing of life.

Max Dix, Zero to Six

The second part of the evening is a new one-act play which will also be the ITG’s FEATS 2008 entry at Stockholm in May, “Max Dix, Zero to Six” (previously known under the working title “Before, before, and then, and then”).  The play follows a boy from the moment of his birth to age six years.  Since the play is about a family, it deals with mystifying terror, confusion, hopes, dreams, domestic violence, jokes, big and little brothers, while swerving from the hilarious to the tragic.  The story is framed by Max, who struggles to become who he thinks he should be, while the adult world tries to shape him into something else.  An urge toward transcendence infuses the production.  Performers include two newcomers to the Brussels theatre scene, but not to theatre, Hilary Barry and Mehran Khalili, and three well-regarded Brussels performers, Roisin Dore, Isabel Walsh and Eduardo Aladro-Vico.

Writer/Director

This is the eighth or ninth production written by Vincent Eaton to receive its premiere in Brussels.  His last production, “BOOM”, represented the ITG at FEATS 2007, and took home a production prize.  He is a writer, video director and performer.

Tickets are €12 (€10 on preview nights). For further details on the play and to book your tickets, visit www.irishtheatregroup.com
