This is not a wedding is Gracefool Collective's new work, touring Autumn 2019.
THIS IS NOT A WEDDING
Expect to laugh, cry and shimmy along to the classics whilst four bridal-clad women attempt to entertain, delight and maintain their dignity in a desperate last ditch effort to work out what the hell it all means.
Witness a generation’s experience of pressure, conformity & expectation in this radical and apocalyptic reimagining of some of our most recognisable ceremonies. As time runs out and the clock counts down, four defiant brides attempt to please everyone and no one, forging their own absurd path through the wilderness of tradition. Using their signature concoction of wildly entertaining dance theatre, Gracefool invite YOU to be guests at the non-wedding event of the year as they attempt to come to terms with coming of age in a high pressure, low tolerance, success driven society.
It’s not a wedding, but it is a celebration, and everyone is invited.
