======================================================= [ SE1 Direct ] http://www.London-SE1.co.uk Issue 17 | 9 August 2000 ======================================================= An email update from the Bankside Press team ======================================================= [ Senses of Place in Waterloo ] Waterloo will come to life on Sunday 13 August when the Young Vic and The Space Project present the climax of six months of work on their community arts project. Senses of Place will celebrate the Waterloo area through the five senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste. Participants are invited to "grab a map" from the Young Vic between 12 noon and 6.30pm and go on a "journey of the five senses", visiting the five transformed spaces along The Cut and Lower Marsh. The organisers have secured the use of five venues including a house, a shop, a surgery and a gallery which will be used to present video, photography, performance, sculpture, soundscapes and more. Other events include Southwark Cyclists' Beating the Bounds ride marking out the boundary of the Waterloo Kite area (meet 2pm at the Young Vic), as well as live music and street performance. Many restaurants, cafes and shops will be open specially for the event, with Cubana in Lower Marsh offering brunch for £9.95 (children £4.95) with free fresh ground coffee. And look out for the Waterloo Millennium Green plant stall opposite the Waterloo Action Centre in Baylis Road. Construction work has now started on this project - see http://www.khi.co.uk/millenniumgreen for background information.

Imprisoned and shackled together both cousins fall in love with Emilia. Immediately their bond of friendship is questioned as they both compete for her. The 16th century parlance within the beautiful ersatz 16th century surroundings of the Globe does not hinder the play in communicating its wit and beauty to a 21st century audience. The acting and flow of scenes keeps the audience guessing as to the outcome of the rivalry between these once good friends. The large impressive skeletal horse enhanced the feel of the play, as too did the musical score. This impressive production was brilliantly done and is well worth catching. The play does not contain your usual Shakespearian plotting, soliloquies and villains but it was a collaborative work and is noted for its prevalent humour. The final conclusion is never a predictable one.
