TANTALISING, ENTERTAINING, RIDICULOUS AND OFTEN BEWILDERING IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY
COMIC GENIUS…GUNN’S TEXT IS INTRICATE AND OFTEN BRILLIANT, FULL OF UNPREDICTABLE DIGRESSIONS AND CURIOUS FACTOIDS. IT’S THE VERBAL EQUIVALENT OF SKIMMING STONES OVER WATER
Walking along the river in a foreign country you see a man throwing stones at a nesting duck. You ask him to stop. He tells you to mind your own business. What do you do?
Presented as a part of Dance Massive, Piece For Person and Ghetto Blaster explores the ethical dilemma of whether to intervene or not, dancing in and out of a tangle of imagined repercussions for how one can potentially become a better person.
Nicola Gunn was last seen on our stage in the furious political satire A Social Service, and she returns with her signature wit, teaming up with choreographer Jo Lloyd, to create a work that is part dance, part theatre, and entirely hypnotic. This is Nicola Gunn at her best: profoundly funny and brilliantly self-scathing
