be•wilder theatre company presents: Old Joe's Fish 'n' Chill
It was Old Joe's golden age: in a time when borders did not exist, travellers and regulars would queue up in front of the club for its famous fish and chips and colourful dance-floor. Everyone was a foreigner and everyone felt at home. Until the incident. One year after a terrorist attack, Old Joe’s Fish 'n' Chill looks so decrepit one might assume it’s out of business.
Yet it remains the only place left in the world where people from anywhere can come and go without a visa.
There, a French drag queen, a German-Japanese gangster, a Finnish letter thief, a Czech dictator, a lungless Brazilian, an English terrorist and an invisible drifter meet for the first – and possibly last – time.
About the company:
be•wilder is an ensemble of international artists and proud graduates of RADA’s acting programme MA Theatre Lab. be•wilder theatre company is based in London. be•wilder members are restless performers whose lungs speak as loudly as their dreams both in sound and in movement. And in every possible language.
The fundamental characteristic of the company is its richness of cultural backgrounds, skills, and points-of-view and their effort is to create a new language that is the sum of all their histories.
What binds them is a shared impulse to provoke, to dialogue with the audience, to shed light into subjects that matter in the present context.
Any means of expression is valid and useful: words, sounds and gestures are equally important in the process of conveying meaning.
They believe in collaboration, and in creating new pieces of writing that are related to them as members of a worldwide narrative.
