CTP Staff member Dr Yana Taylor has received terrific reviews for Version 1.0 The Disappearances Project, at the Brighton Festival. Selected as one of the Brighton Festival theatre highlights, it played on the opening night to a full house and received rave reviews.
“Those are some of the issues raised by Australian company version 1.0 in this verbatim show that offers a collage of the experiences of Australians who have been left behind by the disappeared. Making its European premiere as part of the Brighton festival, the hour-long static show is delivered by two actors – Irving Gregory and Yana Taylor, both superb – who sit facing the audience. The piece displays a frozen quality, its form mirroring the emotional state of those talking about the people they love, there one day and gone the next.“ **** Lyn Gardener, The Guardian, UK.

“They speak verbatim-style, conveying a sense of both raw communication and heroic composure, over the fluctuating tensions of Paul Prestipino’s bleak industrial sound-track” ***** Bella Todd, The Stage, UK. Read more here.
