About the show
Across a suite of offices in the centre of London, the Lab Collective present a series of intimate performances laying bare their dystopian vision of the world of finance and commerce.
In Matador, a final trader stands in the ruins of the collapsed finance industry performing his swansong. As his world crumbles around him, the Matador tries to make one last deal with the audience. Moving through a corridor, The Bean Counter sits in the tax office, trying to find a way to fill the hole in our country’s pockets. Making the decisions that no-one else wants to, he tries to avoid his own gaze in the mirror as he realises, that he can’t enforce the rules he worships.
A remnant of economic hope is found in Trust Fund, where the audience is offered the unique opportunity to invest in our most precious resource – our children. The future generations are our country’s greatest asset, and surely the best way for us to enable them to meet their potential is to privatise childhood?
Born of frustration, anger and a sense of powerlessness of the individual caught in a society driven by the market and a failing economy, these performances have been developed over the last two years through Theatre Delicatessen’s Associate Artist scheme. This is the first time that these three pieces will be performed together and in their entirety.
Theatre Delicatessen explores text-based theatre by working with ensemble casts, and creating immersive performances inspired by alternative performance spaces. Considered to be one of the leading lights of the pop-up arts movement, over the last five years they have staged groundbreaking immersive performances in spaces across London. Most recently Theatre Delicatessen worked with the Bush Theatre to create Bush Bazaar (August 2012): a theatrical marketplace that took over every inch of the new Bush Theatre building, incorporating 25 emerging theatre companies and over 100 performers.
