On 5, 6 and 7 February 2015 the Georgian re-staging of The Zero Hour, an amazing and innovative example of the screening theatre from Britain, will be premiered at the Batumi Musical Centre, as part of our Performing Arts Support Programme in Ajara.
Framed as a film that is being directed by a famous film director and crew, The Zero Hour fuses live action with pre-recorded film, animation, and computer generated imagery to create a world where human relations are located to be at the heart of historical events.
This is a performance work that is structured around the relationship that exists between theatre and cinema.We present what has become the signature of imitating the dog (ITD) and what we hope will be an exciting new experience for Georgian audiences and theatre practitioners: a large front mask, through which the audiences watch actors performing between the layers of front and back projection.
The Georgian re-staging of The Zero Hour is a partnership work of imitating the dog (ITD), Batumi Musical Center and Batumi State Drama Theatre. The Zero Hour is supported by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport of Ajara Autonomous Republic and the British Council.
