Paolo Mangiola

Read more ...When Paolo Mangiola originally applied with Nuclear Romances, I was thrilled to see that Fukiko Takase would be performing in it; she'd performed in Devaraj Thimmaiah's Arranged Marriage, which was one of our favourite works of the previous festival. But Fukiko was not available for the festival, so Chihiro Kawasaki had to quickly learn the role, before Paolo left for Japan for a study trip funded by the Lisa Ullman Travelling Scholarship Fund.

Chihiro brought a very fresh and engaging quality to the role, and as you can see from the photos, this was a very light-hearted rehearsal indeed! It's been hard resisting the urge to post far more photos...

Nuclear Romances was performed on Friday 5 July, and you can read more about it here.
