Event Description

Curated by Theatr Iolo

KISSING THE SHOTGUN GOODNIGHT, a neo-noir fever dream and a 120 decibel suicide note. a gleeful howl from the armpits of hell, Bailey’s words deliver a linguistic kaleidoscope of caustic cartoons, crackpot prophesies and demented erotica. a panorama of humanity in tatters, of a diseased society at war with itself, blown-out, bloated and tumbling towards a million nauseating climaxes. by turns gruesome and euphoric, snotty and psychotic. a giddy cocktail of impotent violence and frantic, frantic sex. an auto-destructive shaggy dog story, a nocturnal meditation crooned into the swollen abyss, and a radical No! to life. a dense, poetic blend of the hallucinogenic and the hardboiled, all set to a warped collision of haunting musics and ear-popping noise. a sumptuous, cinematic melting pot of psycho-acoustic trickery, futurist soundscaping and dark psychedelia.


recommended for those with an aural fixation. no kids. no dogs.
