Shutterland (Rhum & Clay Theatre Company)

By | Published on Sunday 14 August 2011

“Get back in your box!” Shutterland is an exuberant four-man performance exploring surveillance society and individual freedom: Lublin, the main character, is totally unaware that he is living in a world in which he has never made a decision for himself. The cast manage to tackle such heavy concepts with a light touch, and their agile movement – refined through training at the Lecoq School in Paris – is combined with physical comedy to great effect. The sound effects, lighting and music all add to a slick show, while the intimacy of the performance space enhances the connection to the audience. A great first Edinburgh production for Rhum and Clay Theatre Company.

Zoo, 5 – 29 Aug (not 22), 4.15pm (5.15pm), £7.00 – £9.00, fpp176.
