Dance

This Really Is Too Much

Dates
Friday 11 November 2016 - Saturday 12 November 2016

Look. (point) You’ve never had it so good. We. Are moving. Forward.

Outlandish, bold and highly entertaining, This Really Is Too Much delves into a world of farcical stereotypes and preposterous power struggles. With irreverent physicality, four characters wrestle with restriction, gender and performance of identity, trying desperately to work out which box they fit into.

Raucous and thought provoking in equal measure, Gracefool's genre-busting performance reveals the downright absurd realities of what it means to be a 3-dimensional, high definition, water-drinking, salad-eating, moisturizing WO-man in modern society. Dripping with virtuosic charm and anarchic wit, this is feminist comedy dance at its very best.

There will be a post-show discussion following the performance on Saturday 12th November.


Reviews

"This really is too much is a gleeful, compelling piece and the Gracefools are a group of artists to watch."

Exeunt Magazine

"Highly entertaining as well as thought provoking as Gracefool Collective show the absurdity of trying to be a person as well as a woman in our society..."

UK Theatre Network

"Gracefool Collective have set a standard in visual storytelling, whilst being unapologetic in what they say."
