"The actors use their bodies and voices in startling ways and the dream-like nature of the action calls on the imagination of each audience member," Ellis said. "It's the kind of theatre that is playful and funny with a surprise around every corner, as well as being a magical way of providing social comment.
"The challenge is finding ways to help the actors free up their bodies, voices and imaginations. One has to almost trick the actors into being more open and playful, so they can enter the worlds they are creating – to do this, we turned each scene into a kind of game.I find such joy in the process of collaborating with a group of committed actors to create new work."
"Burning Rose is theatre that truly engages the audience, giving them a satisfying emotional and imaginative experience," Ellis said. "The stories are universal and relevant with anyone being able to relate to them."
