Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017 – Silent Faces present ‘Follow Suit’

Print Friendly

Political fools set to clown around at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Silent Faces Theatre present “Follow Suit”

An integrated company of political fools take on corporate responsibility using clowning and uproarious physical comedy set to classical music. Silent Faces’ debut production gives a darkly comic take on the chaotic world of high finance.

Witness these business people crawl up the walls of their office in search of inspiration for the distraction. Their absurd office routine grows ever more ridiculous as four office clowns attempt to ignore the elephant in the room – their boss filling their stationary cupboard with dead bodies. As their total profit rises to the tune of In the Hall of the Mountain King, so does the office body count…

Silent Faces formed in 2015 with the aim of making brave, unique, challenging and ridiculous devised theatre; Follow Suit is a product of this ethos.

A spokesman explained : “Silent Faces is an integrated company of disabled and non-disabled performers. We pride ourselves on making work that explores the unique possibilities of that arise from working with disabled and non-disabled performers, and challenge the assumption that such work is limited in its potential. We are particularly passionate about current ongoing debates surrounding “invisible” disabilities, including long-term mental health conditions.”
