BARCELONA – A philosophical comedy brought to the stage by DustyApple, an English-speaking theatre collective.
Set in 1970s communist Cuba, ‘Clouds’ is a lesser-known work of celebrated British author and playwright Michael Frayn. Two rival British journalists and one American academic are searching for stories on “the real Cuba”. Each with their own agenda, the characters clash hilariously with their surroundings and one another. ‘Clouds’ looks at passion, inspiration and how we perceive life through the lens of our own understanding.
DustyApple are a young and innovative collective, who aim to make theatre for the people by the people – no professionally trained actors, no frills, no profits. They formed in February 2012, seeking to combine language-learning with theatre and produce good quality English theatre for the community. DustyApple now are residents in Centro Civico Drassanes teaching theatre through English to adults. Last June they performed a 24-hour showcase in Teatre de L’Enjolit, followed by the hugely successful production of ‘The Erpingham Camp’ by Joe Orton last November. ‘Clouds’ is their third project which, (appropriately), explores the search for inspiration and creativity abroad.
