Daniel Oliver: Weird Séance - SOLD OUT

Date:Wed 16 Dec
Price:£12 | £10 (cons)

We’re excited to present a socially distanced performance of Weird Séance. Click HERE for information about the precautions that we are going to be putting in place for every socially distanced event. Safety for audiences will be a number one priority in experiencing great art together. 

Join Daniel for a wild and raucous participatory performance in a fake real woods in an ACTUALLY IMAGINED post-apocalyptic future of a participatory performance about YOU AND YOUR REAL FAKE DEATHS that actually happened in THE PAST which is NOW.  

Sometime ago in a performance space just like this one something went really, awfully, violently wrong. It involved Daniel Oliver doing a participatory performance and it involved an axe and it involved you and all the people you were with. We gather here to revisit, remember and reconstruct that event – and, with Daniel’s help, to attempt contact with those we lost.  

This is a performance about getting involved and not getting involved, about pretending but not pretending we’re not pretending, about reaching a Dionysian space of euphoria and transformation through immersion in awkwardness and horror, and about having fun with the idea that you and everyone you love died horribly.  

With live music from Steve Blake

Socially Distanced Show

'Beginning as a bumble and closing in a hilarious, warm, merciless satire of the conventions of live art, it blasts any concerns about sentiment or self-congratulation into jagged fragments'
