AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The play begins with a man stepping out of his apartment into the chaos of a busy night. His aim: nothing more than to speak to strangers, to meet new people, to flirt with the simple differences any urban street may throw up. The result: an evening of human connection between people whose collision is as profound as it is happenstance.' Source: www.melbournefestival.com.au/ (Sighted 20/09/2010).

Hyperrealism and the Everyday : The Plays of Ranters Theatre Raimondo Cortese , 2017 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australasian Drama Studies , April no. 70 2017; (p. 134-158)
'This article reflects on the performance texts that I have written and dramaturged with Ranters Theatre over a twenty-two-year period, covering three phases of work, each of which engages everydayness as part of its methodology. A key focus is textual dramaturgy, how the text is constructed, critiqued and dramaturged in order to create a finished performance text of play. Comparison is drawn with other contemporary theatre practitioners in Melbourne and overseas who also engage the everyday as a central component of their raison d'etre.' (Abstract introduction)
