Australian Stage – April 2013
By Trevar Alan Chilver
Those who enjoy a good lecture will be decidedly disappointed by this seminar on classic Shakespearean plots. Those who detest a good lecture, however, should be tickled pink by the Professor’s quirky wit and humour, and his delightful playfulness with improvised puppets.

Georis, visiting from Belgium, clearly works out of the French mime tradition and the European background of puppetry (which in England is represented by Punch and Judy). I remember a puppet version of Blanc Neige for children in Paris some decades ago. Somewhere there’s a memory of commedia dell’arte in Georis’ style as a comedian, as well.

For Richard, Professor of Literature
Richard, self-professed professor of literature, bumbles into the small Street Two space intent on teaching about Shakespeare. Stephane Georis’ Richard is an uncertain expert but very keen to communicate with an amiable audience what he does know about three plays in particular: Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet and Richard III.

Canberra Times – April 2013
Shakespeare is served up with a difference in Richard, Professor of Literature. In co-writer and performer Stephane Georis’s one-man show, Hamlet is told using fish fingers, Romeo and Juliet with clothes and Richard III with a pork roast.
“The character is a teacher of literature,” says the Belgian-born actor, comedian and puppeteer, who is making his Canberra debut with the show.
