Megalopolitan @ The VAULT Festival Review

Having seen Karis Halsall’s part in the ambitious 503Fusions (which she also curated) last month, it was with, I’ll admit, a little trepidation that I entered the aptly named “Cage” space in The Vaults under Waterloo last night for Megolopolitan. Extended from the 15 minutes I saw her perform at Theatre503, this is Halsall’s hour long piece, which pulls together projected images, live and pre-recorded music and sound, spoken word and vignettes, performed by Halsall and her collaborator Samuel Organ. I had thoroughly enjoyed her short piece at 503, but how would it translate to something longer?

503 Fusions @ The Theatre 503 Review

Theatre503 is the most important fringe theatre for new writing in the country. In one year alone they receive 1,500 unsolicited scripts for submission (they have an open submission policy, all year round). They put on the standard London fringe month-long performance runs – but have an interesting program of small “one-off” events. To go and see something with more of a workshop feel, with more of a “this is being created right now” aesthetic is a joy, and one so well curated by Karis Halsall over three nights in January. 503Fusions at Theatre 503 was a 70 minute long piece with four parts to it, all written by different groups of multi-talented people.
