Presented by Vijay Patel
Pull The Trigger is a live art/cabaret display of Indian corner shop culture and servitude; following immigration and refuge. Mundane actions of stocktaking are fused with uncomfortable, repetitive cabaret numbers. An autobiographical solo performance unearthing frustrating structures of work life within the anarchy of capitalism. This is a show which deconstructs the aesthetics of our ‘British’ corner shops which keeps the rawness of building a new life. What do we want/have to do for work?
Pull The Trigger has been developed and showcased at Artsadmin, Battersea Arts Centre, Duckie, and the University of Chichester.
