Jamie Wood – O No! (Jamie Wood)

By | Published on Saturday 29 August 2015

O No!

This will either be your favourite show of the year, or you’ll want to hunt me down for recommending it. I’m not sure there are any alternatives for this gloriously weird show. Jamie Wood, taking inspiration from Yoko Ono’s performance art pieces, presents a genuinely surreal experience. Like some sort of enlightened guru, Wood invites his audience to get naked with him in a duvet cover, to cut pieces from his dress with a pair of scissors, to consider the relationship between a pair of clouds. It’s hilarious and it’s loving and it’s wonderful. The constant audience participation is joyful and silly, though the anticipation can be a little terrifying: the house lights are always on, there’s no escape.

Assembly Roxy, until 31 Aug.
