Michael Clarke: Felt (Michael Clarke)

By | Published on Sunday 26 August 2018

This ludicrously weird multimedia show is nothing short of genius. Captivated from beginning to end, we are taken on a journey through Michael Clarke’s childhood memories and the many forms of felt behind each tale. Fast-paced, energetic and dynamic, he manages to find humour in the most absurd places, with a skilled use of wordplay and visual gags. The repetition of certain motifs is particularly effective, particularly that of the show’s “sponsor” – Feltaskelta. This satirical look at advertising is absurd and ridiculous, and leaves the audience roaring with laughter. Performed with a unique flair for comic timing, this rip-roaring and ultimately heart-warming piece is jam-packed with drama and moments of sincere shock. Please don’t miss this.

Black Medicine Basement and Heroes, until 26 Aug.
