Kafka’s Report to the Academy

Kafka’s, A Report To An Academy Performer: Adrin NeatrourDirector: Nazim Kourgli.Lighting: Bill OrmondDuration :60minsVenue Star & Shadow, Byker, Newcastle upon TyneThursday 8th November *****Kafka
wrote this short towards the end of his life, it’s an enigmatic piece
reversing his usual direction of travel from man to animal, the
metamorphosis in this instant is from beast to man. Adrin Neatrour
delivers a spell binding performance, grace, beauty and word perfect.
Every grunt is choreographed, it’s a ballet in which even the props are
animated. Nazim Kourgli and Adrin Neatrour are to be congratulated in
taking what is at best a dull read and moulding it into a piece
demonstrating the power of theatre. The transformation is seamless
man-ape-man in front of our eyes. The journey uncovers the depths to
Kafka’s work which are simply unimaginable otherwise. How can an ape
become a man? That thought needs no answer, its obvious. Why should he
want to? We feel weknow by the time the lights fade.
Catch this if you can. Abdul Hamed
