LaMama Presents SACRED ELEPHANT by Heathcote Williams

I photographed the dress/tech today of this amazing show. It is based on a poem by English author Heathcote Williams and adapted for stage by Geoffrey Hyland and Jeremy Crutchley.

The Official Website for this beautifully acted show states the following:

The play’s immediate and essential subject is the elephant itself, mysterious, majestic – the world’s largest and oldest living land-mammal – yet it ultimately confronts the tensions in the extraordinary and historic relationship with humans – sounding out the nature of the mind and soul of Man. 

Jeremy Crutchley is “The Other”, a presence caught between worlds. While the inspiration comes out of Africa, the themes are universal: as relevant in the heart of the city as in the wild. This is us, now. There is simply no other drama quite like it. 

Here are some photographs from the dress/tech today. The show times and dates are listed below the photographs.
