Out of Spite Theatre and Jamie Eastlake Productions present
THIS IS NOT CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT.
by Adam Scott-Rowley
Following a highly successful run at VAULT Festival, where it was awarded ‘Show of the Week’, Out of Spite Theatre presents the transfer of the critically acclaimed, Edinburgh Fringe sell-out, This Is Not Culturally Significant..
A brutally intense, darkly comic one-man show that unveils the bizarre, compulsive and eccentric nature of humanity. This thunderous, high energy piece of theatre is performed entirely nude and combines dark clowning and deeply grotesque bouffon to create a sharp political comment on contemporary society.
This is a show for thrill-seekers. It is both uncomfortable to watch and mesmeric, leaving audiences’ emotions balancing on a knife edge. From a mendacious Spiritualist Lecturer to a despondent American Porn Star on the brink of her retirement, over ten characters take the audience on a journey from emotional despair to helpless laughter.
Out of Spite Theatre was founded by Adam Scott-Rowley in 2014 and strives to create confrontational, unsettling and high-intensity theatre. This Is Not Culturally Significant. is the company's first show, which aims to unmask the superficiality of our society's expectations, desires and collective ego.
Adam Scott-Rowley graduated from LAMDA in 2014. Since then, he has acted professionally in both Film and Theatre as well as forming his own company; Out of Spite Theatre. Adam’s focus for the company is rooted deeply in defying traditional theatrical norms and playing with form by combining the use of bouffon, clown and in-yer-face theatre.
