Rob Auton: The Hair Show (Rob Auton)

By | Published on Tuesday 15 August 2017

Like it or not, you probably have hair, but I doubt you’ve given it as much thought as Rob Auton. To embrace the theme, he hasn’t cut his hair or shaved since September last year. It’s given him the opportunity to experience all of the pros and cons hairiness has to offer, resulting in some brilliantly daft observations on the social, cultural and physiological meanings of hair. From a great opener on the experience of visiting a hairdresser, to his new affinity with dogs, the hirsute poet is a great advocate for embracing our furry selves. Amidst the wonderful absurdity of his show, there’s also a great serenity to Auton’s performance that makes his hairy experiment seem utterly justified.

Just The Tonic at The Caves, until 26 Aug.
