Worst Absurd

“From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.” – Dr. Seuss.

A collection of clowns and one very dazed producer, we explore contemporary absurdities through a blend of dance, comedy and object theatre. We make relevant and accessible work that engages its audience in contemporary social discussions through a collage of witty gestural choreography, clown and eclectic soundtracks. We place importance on entertaining and uplifting our audience as well as provoking how they think about current issues and conversations.

Our Aim: to magnify contemporary social issues through a satirical lens and represent them through live theatre

Our Mission: to offer a creative and entertaining space for thought and discussion, whilst provoking a stronger sense of accountability and responsibility

Our Vision: a world that recognises and responsibly takes action against life's absurdities
