WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Catatonically deadpan, gratuitously vapid and gleefully strung out, Karaoke is a performance about love and rockets for two performers and an autocue. Playing out as an actual karaoke, the text and action read off of a screen and projected up for all the audience to see, the show is an exercise in manic anti-theatricality that's either brazenly cynical or pathetically honest depending on how you want to look at it. There will be an awkward kind of chemistry. A narcotic kind of grace. And when the chorus kicks in we can all sing along with it...
World Premiere. Duration: 60mins. Recommended Age: 12+.Karaoke is the middle part of Lost in the Funhouse, a loosely connected trilogy of performances about pleasure and boredom in this the adolescent decade of the 21st
