SUMMARY

Lisa Jeschke & Lucy Beynon are pleased to present their new theatre performance 'John Hurts [From Idiot]' at this year's Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 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.

Lisa Jeschke & Lucy Beynon have been making performance work together since 2007. They are based in Berlin.

'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)

Admission: £6(£4)
