MADURAI: Students of Madura College had a real break from academics on Tuesday afternoon when they were treated to a stunning performance by The Grand Theatre of Lemmings, UK.
Performing King Kong in what is claimed to be the smallest stage in the world at 5.5 X 6 feet, the troupe kept the audience spell bound for nearly one hour.
Using replicas of ships, toy guns, and helicopters, artistes David Danzig and artists Mandy Medlicott, Cassie Catchpole and Rose Lucas vividly recreated the journey of the ship called Good Hope in the Pacific Ocean in search of Fog Islands. Cassie Catchpole was brilliant in his role as King Kong.
“It is the first time I am seeing a theatre group performing a movie (King Kong) more interestingly and humorously in the smallest theatre form,” said Rajan, a film critic.
A student from a theatre school said, “Though we have street theatres in our country, the concept of small theatre is very innovative.”
