WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
By thirty, some people choose to rip their own throats out in despair. I chose to enter an over-10s swimming competition... I could've been better. Here is the story of how. Somewhere between stand-up comedy and theatre, Idiot Child make funny, unusual and bleak work that always places the audience at its heart. Combining movement, film and simple, engaging storytelling, the company tell playful tales of beautiful failure. Idiot Child might be familiar to local audiences thanks to their theatrical and often darkly comic, semi-autobiographical pieces that have included last year's tender ode to loneliness, You're Not Doing It Right. It's good to have them back...
