Desperate Men - Slapstick & Slaughter

Desperate Men - Slapstick & Slaughter

Desperate Men


Two men recklessly attempt to confront the absurdity of war in just 40 minutes, using their bodies, their voices and the surrealist toolbox of DADAism.

Playful, physical and blackly comedic, Slapstick & Slaughter examines how the barbaric chaos of WW1 manifested itself in the nihilistic, nonsensical art that grew from it.

This show splatters big ideas on a small canvas, exploring art’s reaction to the war’s wholesale destruction of lives, the old order and old hypocrisies and finding echoes in equally absurd modern conflicts.
