Solfatara by ATRESBANDES
What happens when your fear comes round for dinner, and your deepest, darkest thoughts refuse to lie low? Solfatara – a term for the openings in volcanic terrain, which emit hot gases high in sulphur. We humans are full of these geographical phenomena: orifices that allow our insides to come to the surface. A relentlessly inventive and hilarious play from catalan company ATRESBANDES that brought the house down at Birmingham’s BE Festival 2012.
‘Uproariously rude and discomfiting.’ (Donald Hutera, The Times).
First Prize and Audience Prize BE Festival.
