Multiple Bad Things

Back to Back Theatre

10 > 12.05.2024
Theatre – Kunstenfestivaldesarts

The works of Back to Back Theatre, an Australian company, question politics, ethics and philosophy. Its members are people with various disabilities. 

Multiple Bad Things is about a small group of people who find themselves alone in a vast, unknown void. They are looking for a refuge, a safe haven away from modern life, from war, from the climate emergency … This sculptural shelter, both functional and imagined, will be built throughout the performance. Struggling to live together in difficult conditions, the characters are exposed to questions of inclusion, identity and intersectionality. 

An original, unconventional show that erases our mental and physical boundaries through a powerful act of the imagination.
