Look. (point) You’ve never had it so good. We. Are moving. Forward.

Raucous, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny, this genre-busting performance reveals the downright absurd realities of life as a 3-dimensional, high definition, water-drinking, salad-eating, WO-man in modern society. ‘Gleefully compelling’ (Exeunt), slickly choreographed and dripping with feminist charm and anarchic wit.

Gracefool combine dancing with dark comedy to delve into a world of farcical stereotypes and preposterous power struggles, wrestling with gender, identity and social convention. An outlandish and wildly entertaining medley of absurd political speeches, talent contests and box ticking.

This Really is Too Much begins with conformity and veers into expressive and manic absurdity. Dance, spoken word, physical theatre, humour and props are all employed to present a dark and radical look at modern society from a female perspective.” – Steven Fraser, The Wee Review
