Ridiculusmus Virtual Trilogy Session 2: Give Me Your Love
2020-06-23T07:19:12Z (GMT) by
The recording of the second session presented as part of a 3 Day Virtual Seminar Series with Ridiculusmus Theatre Company. This session is about 'Give Me Your Love'.
SATURDAY 23RD MAY 2020, 2PM – 3:30PM
The second show in the trilogy explores post-traumatic stress and the therapeutic potential of controlled doses of MDMA. The production signals the mental health experience by unpacking the theatre-viewing experience: in a claustrophobic ‘flat’ one performer remains in a box, with legs only visible throughout the whole show, while only the arm of another performer reaches out to him through the narrow gap in a chained door.
“It’s Ridiculusmus at their best, with their signature blend of silliness and seriousness” – The Stage.
