INTIMACY


‘Intimacy is a stunning psychological as well as theatrical achievement.’

Emer O’Kelly, Irish Independent / Project Arts Centre Dublin, Ireland 2011

‘The acting is outstanding! It feels like anything but a regurgitation of a rehearsed play. The dynamic and chemistry between the performers seemed so real it felt like you were in the room as this happened for the first time.’

Shane Noone, The Journal.ie / Project Arts Centre Dublin, Ireland 2011

‘A presentation of such a high standard, both psychologically and theatrically. With a depth and a subtle manner of acting that I rarely see in theaters. With just the right facial expressions and perfect body language. Actually, no-one does it better. It cannot be that performances of this group can only be seen in the Netherlands at Noorderzon.’

Piet Van Kampen, Noorderzon Theatre Blog / Noorderzon Festival, Groningen, The Netherlands 2012

‘The conversations seem so natural and honest that it is hard to believe that actors are at work here. Would they really expose their heart and soul? I believe it anyway and go deeply impressed with a sense of relief at home. Nothing finer than the confirmation that we are all only human.’

Ruben Allersma, http://noorderzon.nl/blog / Noorderzon Festival, Groningen, The Netherlands 2012

‘Adriano Cortese’s restrained and shape direction is right on the money. All the elements; staging, lighting, sound are unobtrusive and perfectly pitched. This is one of the cleverest and most enjoyable shows you’ll see in a while.’

Prue Bentley, ABC Melbourne / Melbourne International Arts Festival, Australia 2010

‘Moments of both levity and poignancy.’

Martin Ball, The Age / Melbourne International Arts Festival, Australia 2010

‘By simply framing and detailing the ordinary, Ranters engages the audience in the process of theatrical meaning-making until the ordinary becomes something else that both reflects what it emerged from and transcends it.’

Carl Nilsson-Pollas, Real Time Arts / Melbourne International Arts Festival, Australia 2010

‘Ranters style of performance is so intimate that it's almost like eaves dropping. It sounds like people talking, with all of our pauses and agreements that mean no more than we are still in the conversation or just letting the other person talk. It makes the natural sound poetic.’

Anne-Marie Peard, Aussie Theatre / Melbourne International Arts Festival, Australia 2010
