The Boy Who Kicked Pigs

| On 11, Aug 2013


Grey is a colour usually associated with blandness. Well, there is much grey in this show. The four performers faces are greyed up and the impressive large scale back projections showing different locations are grey in tone. The tale that is told is anything but bland. It is totally bizarre where comedy meets horror.

Cleverly constructed scenes follow one another at a frenetic pace. The main character is Robert Caligari, a nasty little boy aged 13, who wants to commit murder. Egged on by his sister’s talking pig toy, fittingly grey in colour, he carries out the evil deed with horrific repercussions.

The four members of the cast throw themselves into performing with huge amounts of energy, total commitment and split second timing. Never a dull moment.
