Made In China: Super Duper Close Up

Date:Thu 05 Mar
Venue:J2 (full capacity seated show)
Price:Pay What You Feel tickets from £2.50

We’re all starring in the movie of our life. Selfie after selfie, post after post. It’s exhausting. So take a break. Bask in the glow of the big screen as someone else has a go. See the heroine all dewy-eyed as the camera zooms in. And in. And in.

Get set for a live-filmed ride through the anxieties of an unsettlingly ordinary woman’s existence. An epic journey to everywhere and nowhere, through a labyrinth of click-bait and pop cliché, via an infinite stream of frozen pouts and desperate smiles.

Razor sharp innovators Made In China return following the “brilliantly subversive” ★★★★ Double Double Act (Time Out) and “murderously entertaining” ★★★★ Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me (The Guardian).

A tragicomic and hypnotic explosion of film, movement and words, Super Duper Close Up asks what a girl is to do when everything is virtual, and virtually everything is for sale. 

Are you ready for your close-up?
