Who Nose? - A Rhinophobic Fairy Tale

First Year Drama and Theatre Studies present 'Who Nose? A Rhinophobic Fairy Tale' a sharing of work based on the text of Nikolai Gogol’s short story The Nose.

Who Nose? A Rhinophobic Fairy Tale is the result of some weeks worth of exploring the text of Nikolai Gogol’s short story The Nose, putting into practice elements learnt in the Introduction to Theatre Practice and Performance module. Adopting the ethos of actor- creators, this production was devised entirely by the first year DTS students, with only provocations, suggestions, and minor interventions on the part of lecturer Scotty Walsh . Students were encouraged to mine the text for “sparks” and to bring those sparks to life. In some instances, the process was direct and simple. In other instances, it took many hours to find exciting solutions. Students have played with images from the text, explored movement and voice in relation to noses and bodies, explored storytelling and the creation of imaginary spaces, and looked at how to create choruses and work as an ensemble. They have also considered relationships between actor, character, and narrator as well as between actor and audience. So it’s not Gogol’s The Nose, exactly, but it is extracted from The Nose. The two versions do, however, share a similar meaning. And the meaning is, well… who knows?
