The New “Normal”. The Wardrobe Theatre presents Beyond The Ridiculous
THE NEW NORMAL
The Wardrobe Theatre presents Beyond The Ridiculous in a live, improvised, online celebration of the human condition!
“Both incredibly funny and incredibly moving.”
The Huffington Post
We all have different sides to ourselves. Some we present to the outside world in neat acceptable packages and others that are locked away in small cupboards, only allowed out every 3rd Thursday or during a Full Moon. The fools of Beyond The Ridiculous remove the filters and invite all the weird and wonderful creatures of the mind out to play!
Fooling is never planned. Each fool steps into the empty space with no idea what they will do and simply connects with their own feelings, thoughts and physicality. They choose from a range of performance techniques to craft short nuggets of authentic, gob-smackingly resonant, never-to-be-repeated, instant theatre.
What it is not: Traditional improv where the audience prompts the performers to do a funny skit.
What it is: Solo performers starting with nothing, feeling into the atmosphere of the moment, finding a simple idea or impulse and developing it into a short piece of theatre.
The New “Normal” is a chance to be inspired by courageous performers leaping into the possibilities of each moment. As the fools dance their hopes, sing their dreams, clown with their fears, embody their grief, you may laugh, you may cry, or stare dumbfounded as you see yourself reflected in the fools’ play.
Audience reactions from BTR’s last online performance:
“It’s some kind of pure presence improv”
“Wild, relatable fun”
“A remarkable show… honest, direct and poetic. “
“Intense, beautiful, moving and joyous.”
“Unrehearsed. Unscripted. Real”
