Return season - Virus: A Fugue - an absurdist tragicomedy

Fear, power and hierarchies compete in a world of people, puppets and model villages.

Who will survive?

Our Nordic Noir performances played to sell-out houses in December 2020. Audiences laughed and gasped at the unexpected twists in Virus - a Fugue. As one Sydney Morning Herald reviewer commented: 'The play within a play works its magic.' Equally popular were the beautifully played and performed excerpts from Ibsen's Peer Gynt

Sydney audiences who missed this production now have a chance to see this quite extraordinary theatrical experience. The double bill plays in a COVID-safe cabaret setting in the majestic Australian Hall provided by the Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Lands Council. 

The first half is a selection of Grieg’s glorious music written for Peer Gynt - Ibsen’s iconic play about identity, narcissism and delusion. It is performed by our talented chamber musicians, dancers and singers. 

This is followed by the new one-act play Virus – a Fugue by Fredrik Brattberg which uses the principles of fugal composition. The result is humorous and eventually disturbing. The play reflects our COVID times and develops in very surprising ways. It is accompanied by a newly composed score based on Bach’s “Little” Fugue in G minor played live by our musicians.

Covid-safe information

At all times we will adhere to the current guidelines from NSW Health.

All performers and crew are advised to stay at home if they're not feeling well or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If symptoms persist, they must test for COVID-19 and self-isolate until the results are received. All performers and crew will receive information and training on COVID-19 including advice to get tested if they have a temperature or are feeling unwell. As far as reasonably practicable, workers should maintain physical distancing within the workplace. Social distancing will be maintained as much as possible. Where physical distancing cannot be maintained, appropriate control measures will be implemented. If social distancing cannot be maintained during a performance, the actors will sign agreements to agree to a strict set of guidelines. 

Email tickets for audience members include an advice to stay home if they're not feeling well - their ticket will be refunded. Notices will be displayed asking customers not to enter the premises if they're not well. 

Hygiene stations (with either hand soap and water in wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens or sanitiser in public areas) will be in prominent locations throughout the building. 

All cast, crew and audience customers will be asked to register with the COVID Safe Check-in using the Service NSW app. Flexible booking arrangements are available to ticket holders with transfers or refunds offered if customers cancel or postpone due to COVID-19 factors.

All tickets are pre-booked with capacity limited to the numbers permitted in the venue. We will ensure the venue we are hiring has an authorised COVID-19 Safety Plan. All our events will be ticketed and the venue capacity will adhere to the current guidelines from NSW Health. 

Signs promoting safe distancing will be displayed where the public may gather including foyers and toilets. Employees and audience will be encouraged to wear face masks whenever possible.
