Yellow Fever

Yellow Fever

CalArts Festival Theater

Vincent languishes in his yellow room until he meets his muse Siena. She has something that Vincent desires, something that he desperately needs. Using the camera as a tool for exploration, Vincent and Siena fight through love.

Art, music and one man looking for answers fuel this dynamic and daring new multimedia drama with live guitar and song, created in a cross-continent collaboration between LA experimental theatre director Allison M. Keating and London playwright, Simon Parker. Obsession, paint, petals, despair and desire clash, colours bleed in the agony and ecstasy of being human.

Mumble Theatre - Three Stars
“Good theatre manages to draw the viewer in and make them think and this production of Yellow Fever at Venue 13 certainly did that. It focuses on just two characters, a tortured painter Vincent and his beautiful muse Siena. Vincent flips between focus and spiralling into confusion and madness as he tries to produce his art, while Siena, not without her own personal sad past, transforms from sexual temptress to frustrated lover, as Vincent’s behaviour becomes more and more erratic.

I thought the two best things about this were the acting, which was polished and convincing, and the direction, which intelligently used lighting and prop positioning to create new scenes without having to change the set at all. It was well timed in terms of pace and the actors used physical movement and good delivery to convey extremes of emotion.

Really enjoyed this and the Venue itself, which is a great location for theatre tucked in a quiet alcove off the Royal Mile."”
