As the MICF circus wraps up, 2 clowns sent it off with a bang.
The afternoon show at ACMI was the icing on the Festival, after a series of ‘Stand up’ wit and profound observations we discover a new territory. These Guys have nothing to say, it’s what they do that suspends reality and slaps you in the face. Throughout the performance the unexpected continued to surface from beneath the banal.
Confused? Good , that’s a great start.
You will be bewitched within a Dadaists performance of an office mundane that imploded into the wild and creative instinct of lifes little dramas. Bit by bit they shatter through reality to reveal a seething internal existence with comic twists.
Intrigued? I hope so, it is an intriguing experience.
No matter how sober you think you are, they will pick up your solid piece of reality and twist it until you feel entirely happy. Like an animal can become a chair, a thing can become an animal. They are very clever Consultation Specialists.
Welcome to Ruck’s Leather Interiors starring Gareth Grubb (Trygve Wakenshaw) and Dennis Chang (Bernie Duncan) as Performance Artists.
Where did you Guys train? MP
“I didn’t do training but Ttygve went to Gaulier, a French Clown School in Paris.”
How did you get into this? MP
“I always made theatre, we started a Company (Theatre Beating) about 14 years ago, and we made stuff we liked”
“I never dreamed that I would ever see two people entertain me from the time they started right up until the very end. Everything that happened was totally unexpected , it shocked me, it was so funny and you never knew what was coming and everything that came was brilliant.”
