Lisa Jeschke & Lucy Beynon
he's dead / he's dead / i've shot him in the head (30 mins)

If there is no such thing as the important, it is important that that which is unimportant - i.e. everything - is not made important. For if the unimportant - everything - is made important, then the unimportant is no longer unimportant.

"Their work incarnates a very rare and exciting mode of live performance which is at once art and entertainment [...] enlivened by a relentless openness to risk." (Cambridge Literary Review, Easter 2010)

john hurts [from idiot] at the Edinburgh Fringe

8-14 August 2011, 8.15pm
The Annexe (at The Vault)
Venue 29
11 Merchant Street, Edinburgh

unintelligible demystifying piece to last forty-five minutes. neither very theatrical, nor audible, nor particularly important. certainly idealistic though. and quick. too quick some might say.

A discrepant piece of minimalist theatre after both Konrad Bayer's 1960 text 'idiot' and the writings of Simone Weil, john hurts [from idiot] is a theatre essay undermined. Audiences have thrown it everything from belly laughter to abuse - certainly it asks for effort and attention. john hurts [from idiot] is political, ridiculous and, if you like, difficult; but whether you find the critical in its idiocy or vice versa, it is a delicate little fart of a piece.

'Their work incarnates a very rare and exciting mode of live performance which is at once art and entertainment [...] enlivened by a relentless openness to risk.'
