  • World premier of Eva Recacha's new work

  • On the 25th-26th April Eva's new work "Easy Rider" will be premiered at The Place. Come and see the wonderful Antonio de la Fe, Eleanor Sikorski and Lola Maury on stage, with Sound by Alberto Ruiz Soler, Design by Kasper Hansen, Lighting Design by Jackie Shemesh and Costume Supervision by Sophie Bellin Hansen. Eva Recacha looks at the human compulsion to engage with superstitious beliefs and practices in the pursuit of happiness, revealing a concoction of religion, customs and self-help manuals drawing on first-hand observations of ritualistic behaviour in her native Spain. I'm sure Eva is right when she says....The evening will be memorable. Tickets from http://www.theplace.org.uk/performances
