Ubu Roi

02-08-2017 21:25 - 27-08-2017 22:35

Stagger me sideways! King Ubu, usurper to the throne of Baloney, carries a mop instead of a sceptre and dreams of his pâté de dog. Meanwhile, he liquidates enemies and friends. Under his reign citizens face unbearable taxation and crippling whimsy, until someone calls for revolution… Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi is an absurd comedy which caused riots and launched the European avant-garde. Ludens Ensemble transform Ubu into a big old bash. Featuring interactive videos, live DJ, puppetry, shadow play, object manipulation and four actors who move about and say things. Supported by the Cyprus High Commission.

    A man gets in an empty London tube carriage to nowhere. He waits and questions a seemingly automated voice for information. And then a woman enters. And then another one. And they keep on going. Not moving. Always questioning, manipulating, feeling one another. It is all about unearthing the information that will help them escape the inevitable
