Brutalust present devised absurdist sound/ theatre performance based on Ionesco’s The Lesson. Repertoire to include new and old works from the Brutalist ensemble. Themes of the work look to cliché, niche and degradation of language, provoking authoritarian and totalitarian realities as present today as they were in 1951. This performance experiments with post-verbatim theatre and storytelling through the sonic imitations of Ionesco’s style.
