‘Outside someone is screaming – just going for it – she wonders what would happen if I just started screaming?’
After their debut show Nothing multi-award-winning young company Barrel Organ present Some People Talk About Violence. In a world of globalization and greed, of zero-hour contracts and The Big Bang Theory, violence worms its way into every aspect of our lives. Expect people, or just ideas, in mindless frustration, on the edge of some kind of revolt.
Some People Talk About Violence follows a family as they struggle with these hidden violences in a modern age full of vapid TV sitcoms and ultra-efficient microwaves. Barrel Organ bring their irreverent and self-aware performance style to this domestic scene, and, with its audience strive to unpack some of the hidden mechanisms that run our lives.
Some People Talk About Violence is the second show from Barrel Organ following their award-winning debut productionNothing. The show has been developed with the support of Warwick Arts Centre, Camden Peoples Theatre and Slung Lows HUB and previewed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 before a two week run at Camden People’s Theatre last December.
