Crashmat Collective are a Cardiff based company that investigate original concepts and experiential live performance; Circus-theatre that blurs the boundaries between performer and audience.
Façade is an intimate and theatrical three course meal, during which, stories unfold about the waiters in a restaurant. All of the staff in the restaurant are the performers and they serve the customers their drinks and food in the ‘mundane’ world. Each person’s story is told through the soundtrack over the mundane world in which we can hear their thoughts; and through a series of vignettes in ‘magic reality’ where circus and heightened performance are possible. The action happens around the audiences, on their tables and is very up close.
Façade offers an in depth circus-theatre experience that blurs the boundaries between performer and audience.
Crashmat are supported by: Arts Council of Wales and Arts Council England. This production is in association with: Wales Millennium Centre, The Riverfront and Creu Cymru and has additional support from: Jacksons Lane and NoFit State Circus.
