‘Art is a cupboard! We are not cakes!’ Lecoq-trained Clout Theatre invite you to dive into the absurd world of the Russian poet, iconoclast and false moustache wearer Daniil Kharms. Three bouffonesque characters intent on telling ‘The Old Woman’ story let narrative escape them as comic vignettes, metaphysical ponderings and bouts of senseless violence provide constant distraction. Expressionist silent film meets grotesque slapstick in a world where clocks have no hands and a cucumber can kill a man.
