One to One Hotel – the Village to host adaptation of ‘The Seagull’
One to One Hotel – the Village will be the setting for a stunning production of Chekhov’s The Seagull for three days on Wednesday 27 April, Friday 29 April and Saturday 30 April in The Village Gardens. The performance by Resuscitation Theatre is the first professional theatre performance by a ‘grass roots’ group of actors and marks the birth of live professional theatre in Abu Dhabi.
Resuscitation Theatre signature style engages the audience through vibrant and unusual use of physical movement, space and lighting. Artistic Director, Maggie Hannan, says: “This play is for modern audiences who enjoy contemporary interpretations of classic theatre. I have conceived Resuscitation Theatre to articulate classic texts through visual forms that will cultivate the relationships between visual art, performance art and theatre.”
“We are delighted to have Maggie choose us, to introduce this form of art, doing something different fits in well with the One to One style.” Says Jessica Asher, Marketing and Communication Manager at One to One Hotel – the Village.
This production is especially exciting for Maggie as it features two Emirati actors in their debut performance of Chekov: Fatima al Taei ex- student and Ibrahim Al Khumairi, student with The New York Film Academy in Abu Dhabi. The other two actors: Dilan Pasha, an Iraqi & Canadian national and Zena Ibrahim, of Jordanian / Irish nationality, were brought up in Abu Dhabi. Maggie adds:, “The only way for live theatre to take its place as in the development of the arts in Abu Dhabi is if it is produced on a local level and not imported!”
Education is as important as performance to Maggie. Through Resuscitation Theatre, she aims to support Theatre-In-Education through workshops for schools, colleges and the community, including workshops for A Level and International Baccalaureate.
Tickets are AED 50 and are available from the One to One Hotel reception. All performances begin at 8pm. The duration of the performance is approximately one hour without an interval.
