Al Seed's Oog: Part Of London International Mime Festival
Intensely poetic piece about a soldier's fractured mind
The end of a war. A locked cellar. A beam of light. Oog leads you deep into the fractured mind of a shell-shocked soldier. Utilising Guy Veale’s powerful soundtrack, this is an intensely physical and poetic exploration of the trauma of conflict and violence, and the psychological damage it inflicts. It burns indelible images on the mind as it questions what happens when humans morph into something different, something less than human. A companion piece to The Factory, shown at the ICA as part of LIMF07, Oog won a Total Theatre Award at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival. The show will feature strobe lighting. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. A post-show discussion following the Sat 16 performance will be chaired by Total Theatre Magazine Editor, Dorothy Max Prior. Concessions include students, kids, oap's unemployed.
"Visual imagery that sometimes takes the breath away…An experience that will leave no-one who sees it completely unchanged."
