Karen Mirza and Brad Butler have collaborated with local Cardiff residents to workshop and stage one of Bertolt Brecht’s short ‘learning plays’ ‘The Exception and the Rule’. The ‘rule’ implies a legal language or a directive, while the ‘exception’ evokes being ungovernable or searching for an alternative to either the state or the free market. Together, they act as both a statement that ‘the rule cannot exist without the exception, and a question as to what a state of exception might be. Mirza and Butler encourage you to enter into the project with the spirit of mutual enrichment and collaboration, where personal experiences/expertise and collective interpretation ultimately converge in the public presentation of the play.
Players: Chris Beaumont, Ric Bower, Brad Butler, Angela Colderick, James Ellis, Vivian.C.Ezugha, Melissa Hinkin, Tabitha Sue Fry, Jemma Llewellyn, Karen Mirza, Kelly Price, Claire Prosser.
Saturday 8 November at the Temple of Peace, Cathays Park
