Clout 2013

How A Man Crumbled

Thu 7 Mar 7.30pm Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 14+

“Art is a cupboard! We are not cakes!”

Award winning Clout Theatre invites you to dive head first into the absurd world of the Russian poet, iconoclast and false moustache wearer Daniil Kharms. Three bouffonesque characters intent on telling ‘The Old Woman’ story let narrative escape them as comic vignettes, metaphysical ponderings and bouts of senseless violence provide constant distraction. Expressionist silent film meets grotesque slapstick in a world where clocks have no hands and a cucumber can kill a man.

Winner: Physical Fest Audience Award 2012
