Two performers engage in an absurd test that seems to shift and change as they work their way through it. Fragments of a language lesson. Questions from a personality quiz. Slogans from some future society. The performers laugh, hesitate, ask for more time. The test continues. As the clock ticks it’s not even certain if the subjects of the test are the audience or the performers.
If All Else Fails is a new collaboration with dancer, maker and choreographer Seke Chimutengwende. Performed with Chimutengwende and Cathy Naden, a founder member of Forced Entertainment, the piece is a dialogue of speech and movement, questions and answers. If All Else Fails brings together two powerful forces in the contemporary theatre scene to create a perplexing and original exploration of new territory.
