Saturday 17th March at 17.30 at The Old Hairdressers. GLASGOW (as part of the Buzzcut Festival!)
Well, we went to the Roundhouse, we showed some bits and we got some feedback. A sea of seemingly angry faces stared at us as we hit them with a flurry of text about possessions, The Shining and alter-ego theatre companies. Fortunately, the anger was only a misperception from inside the trappings of our performance and the feedback session afterwards was useful and constructive, with some engaging and deeply responsive feedback. It has definitely made us think further about the text in relation to the performance style we have chosen to adopt so far, and the general consensus was that even if it is confusing it is never unengaging because of that. In fact some people could have handled further confusion; you don’t have to tell us twice!… Read on...
There we’ve said it!

“The idea of murder frequently evokes the idea of sea and seafarers. No precise image of sea and seafarers may at once spring to mind: it is rather that Murder surges over our thought in breakers of emotion. If we suppose seaports to be theatre of recurrent crimes, then the explanation is simple and need not detain us; but the chronicles are numberless from which we learn that the murderer was a man of the sea – either in reality or imagination – and if the latter, then crime will have less affinity with the sea.” Jean Genet Querelle of Brest… Read on...
Yes, that’s right, SBAB are performing as part of Scratxe #5 at Factoria Del Fuegos in Vitoria-Gaistez, Spain!
We’ll be travelling out in November to give the Spaniards a taste of our little piece of quirk. Let’s hope they enjoy it.
I’m very excited to be able to say that we finally have a copy of the ERMAZING “Der Todesking” winging its way towards us…
No other film director, perhaps with the exception of Bunuel, captures “the epic decaying image” or the tableau mort to the extent we are using for our piece. His use of these setups to explicate the differences between living and dead are useful to us; and his films hint to the connectedness beyond physicality, even through it into viscerality, that we are also trying to create in our piece.
The often clear demonstrative process used by the film-makers and the phoneyness of the props and actions interests us too:
plus the exquisite music of Hermann Kopp
Unfortunately, its very difficult to get hold of “Schramm” – another classic Buttgereit film – so here’s some trailers:
