An interactive, music and clowning-filled interrogation of power and those who wield it from critically acclaimed Lecoq-trained clown, Claire Parry
Boorish Trumpson: A power-grabbing rehearsal conductor who will stop at nothing to gain ultimate control over the orchestra. And YOU are the orchestra. #MakeMusicGreatAgain
With clowning games, audience interaction and unexpected orchestral manipulations, Boorish Trumpson plays with the audience in an attempt to assert his ultimate power grab. The unique sound design, virtuosic physicality and playful absurdity of the piece (not to mention a script constructed from verbatim Donald Trump and Boris Johnson quotes) creates a raucous humour whilst the bigger questions bubble below: in our world of troubled politics, how complicit are we in enabling such figures to rise to the top?
Claire Parry is a Lecoq-trained theatremaker/clown/musician/writer/composer/performer/director with a penchant for the socio-political and as you can imagine, takes a very interdisciplinary approach to her work. She has written and performed two solo shows, Intolerable Side Effects and Boorish Trumpson (Artist Choice nominee, Vault Festival 2023), which have both toured to Edinburgh fringe and beyond. She has also devised, performed and composed the music for Cache-Cache, an ensemble led physical theatre show currently touring in France.
