Thom Monckton is spending this residency to work on his performance – The King of Taking – produced by Kallo Collective.
About the performance
The King of Taking boasts circus, mime, and a whole lot of velvet. Allergic to normal flooring, a childish and petulant King can only walk on red carpet, and can’t move without an effective fanfare. His executions are unsustainably frequent as he callously barrels towards his own destruction. The King requests wrapped gifts from his subjects (you). Gifts can be old or new and will feature on stage.
A performance for the public will take place on 9th of May in DYNAMO. More information and tickets – here.
