We're all in it together. We're all middle class now. Class politics is dead. Class war is over. Class Act is a cutting and irreverent take on these and other lies.
Part performance, part workshop, part series of games, and part blazing argument, Class Act is an interactive entertainment variety looking at where we come from, what that means, and what you're going to do about it.
Devised and performed by Harry Giles, a theatre-maker and poet working in participatory theatre and political engagement.
Class Act is an Ovalhouse Counter-Culture Commission.
Inspired by Ovalhouse's history of radical and activist performance, these seed commissions investigate what counter-culture could mean today. Is it possible to be an outsider in a society priding itself on inclusivity? Who gets to be counter-cultural? And who gets to decide?
This mini-season of works-in-progress marks the beginning of an exploration that will grow into a Counter-Culture season sometime in 2013.
In the hideaway house of a rebel leader's family, we enter a world of rituals and secrets. Daddy has long since gone; lost in the jungle on a dangerous mission. His wife and children crave his return, and their waiting games have taken a sinister twist.
