Presented by Cape Theatre
Part of ‘Fitter Happier More Productive’: a selection of cutting-edge artists respond to the cult of self-betterment, and explore how it feels to be imperfect in its shadow.
Commenting on self-help culture and celebrity obsession, two performers strive to make an audience love them over the course of an hour.
This is about charisma: what it is, who has it and if it is possible to learn it. Inspired by the self-help manual The Charisma Effect by Andrew Leigh, this performance sees two artists attempt to win round an audience by being as charismatic as possible.
Cape Theatre re-enact fragments of their charismatic idol John F Kennedy’s life, through their own imagination, to understand the desire for perfection. How do you make a nation fall in love with you, and how do you make an audience feel the same way?
A work-in-progress version of We Choose to go to the Moon was presented as part of the Starting Blocks 2015 showcase, and now returns to CPT for its premiere.
