Dates and Times
7 November 2014 to 8 November 2014 at 9pm
Presented by Inconvenient Spoof
Framed as a support group meeting for those who ‘think too much’, this 'poststructuralist Zen clown show’ is around and about how the language we use creates the world as we know it. A self-confessed analysis junkie dramatically reconstructs a tortuous train of thought, en route to a mid-life epiphany. Encounters with ‘Non-Sense therapy’ seemingly cure him of his addiction, but lead to a new dependency on idiotic behaviour. The tale is told through highly visual and offbeat means, including a fly’s encounter with a spider in a public toilet, and a dancing robot attacked by a remote-controlled helicopter.
This is the third show from Brighton-based company, Inconvenient Spoof, following Naïve Dance Masterclass (Soho Theatre, 2013) and Dean Gibbons and the Knowledge of Death. Provocative, intelligent and entertaining, the show wrestles with grand themes in a sophisticated yet accessible form with a broad, inclusive appeal – colourful, funny, short and deep.
