Uninvited Guests in collaboration with sound artist Duncan Speakman
Followed by a post-show discussion
Arnolfini has worked with Uninvited Guests from the earliest stages of their career and continues to support them as they develop into one of Britain’s foremost experimental performance companies.
Schlock collides the real with the really fake. Personal experiences of bodily trauma and fears about accidents or violent attacks encounter the erotics of TV hospital dramas and horror flicks. The result is a darkly comic and disconcerting mix of B-movie melodrama, real acts of violence and pints of fake blood. Schlock asks if we can sit at the bedside of a loved-one in hospital, or hear the beeps of a heart monitor without thinking of endless scenes from film or TV? What is it in horror that holds us, makes us want to look at accidents as we drive-by? Uninvited Guests explore our desire to look and to look away. Please be aware that this show has scenes using stage blood.
