ED2012 Theatre Review: Food for Thought (Figs In Wigs)

ED2012 4/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

Cheryl Coleslaw, Madonner Kebab and co are introduced by the Artist Formerly Known As Mince to the sound of banging techno music. They are dressed in what looks like the best finds from a charity shop rummage, adorned with matching monobrows and blue lipstick and break into an intricately choreographed dance routine. You may spend the first twenty minutes of this show wondering what is going on, but once you get past this confusion and appreciate it for what it is, a quirky piece of devised theatre, it is immensely enjoyable. It is funny, clever and the movement is fascinating. It won’t be to everyone’s taste, but even if it isn’t, it’s so weird that you’ll find yourself wanting more.

theSpace @ Venue 45, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22, 24 Aug, 7.05pm.
