FoolishPeople Reviews

VIRULENT EXPERIENCE

“Your journey into the mid 21st century will take you from the museum's basement to the roof, and past a dizzying array of disturbing art and challenging performances...  the most intense theatrical event I've attended this year — believe me, it is way, way out there!”

CIRXUS

“The stark and industrial setting for this piece of promenade theatre is instantly eerie and unnerving. The lighting is dim, the space echoes and bizarre characters creep up on you. Harrigan completely smashes down the fourth wall as the audience, walking around the space, become entangled in the piece. The experience is simultaneously funny and disconcerting... much of the excitement of this piece comes from its mystery, so I am loath to give anything else away. Cirxus is a place of the unknown and should remain so for those of you yet to enter this demented playground.”

— ★★★★ Rachel Sheridan, What's on Stage on 'Cirxus'

A RED THREATENING SKY

“Conceived by FoolishPeople's Artistic Director John Harrigan, the detail and beauty of this work is spellbinding, so that at times one loses all sense of where the performance begins and the truth ends.”

— ★★★★★ Gabriella Apicella, Remotegoat

“Anyone who has lived at all will find moments that will be personally painful, but this is a fascinating experience and it is performed with such reality by the actors that it is totally absorbing, though sometimes played with an intimacy that you must strain to hear, and then there is the added engagement of chasing after or seeking out new episodes. When Harry meets the missing Pearl (Lucy Harrigan) will he recognize her, and will you? When you do you will probably realise that you've in fact already met her. Is Harry innocent or guilty? Is Ray (Jamie Richards) the sadistic tool of Mr. Qyain or trying to help her? The questions are not so much about them as about you.”

— Howard Loxton, British Theatre Guide

DEAD LANGUAGE

“Dead Language imagines a future in which the work of art stars like Banksy is so popular that fans trade in the DNA of the artists themselves, creating clone gangs of Emins and Warhols that roam the city. In part, Dead Language is an investigation of the limits of intellectual property rights, but it also a smart and spirited examination of the way that the value of art shifts with time and context.”

— Ekow Eshun, Cultural Commentator

DARK NIGHTS OF THE SOUL

“FoolishPeople's Dark Nights of the Soul is a truly unique production. By turns darkly comic, surreal, horrific, genuinely thought-provoking and certainly not for the faint of heart. Verdict: Dark Nights of the Soul is pure Fortean magick. 10/10”

— Oll Lewis, Fortean Times

“There are a few times when you are sitting in a place and you have to think 'This is an iconic moment — something really important is happening here.' The Dark Nights is a shout to complacency — it's transgressive and antinomian, clearly inspired by the Chaos magic movement. YET (and it's an important 'yet')... it cries out to the sacredness of the Earth, to the living and alive relationships between people and Nature.”

— Dr. Christina Oakley Harrington, Author

Over a number of years, FoolishPeople has developed a unique practice, Theatre of Manifestation. This is a form of ritual theatre that combines mythology, shamanism, drama therapy, strategic forecasting and open source collaboration. We create stories by merging film, performance, sound, art, light and the location to create a unique, dreamlike world that living characters inhabit.

Our audience must choose their own journey without guidance, a technique which challenges their habitual way of watching art and entertainment in a conventional manner. Static consumption is not possible, active engagement and participation is vital and absolutely necessary.

Each spectator will have their own personal experience inside the story and will absorb different strands of the narrative. Fragments, which the witness will use to construct their own reality. This structure allows for an intimate interaction with our art that can be a powerful, compelling and liberating experience.
