5 in the Morning and Doublethink

DOUBLETHINK

★★★★&#9733 “A fascinating exercise in psychological puppetry… a supurb deconstruction of notions of relationship… a triumph of technological and conceptual prowess, in the guise of bare-bones avant-gardism.”
– Irish Times

Two completely unrehearsed guest performers – different every night – follow instructions from a recorded voice, with a divider between them. They can’t see each other; the audience sees both sides, and their differences. Twisted and mischievous, Doublethink is an epic story-experiment about freedom, the farce of self-knowledge and the times we prefer being told what to do.

FIVE IN THE MORNING

In Five in the Morning, three willing guests take instructions from the loudspeakers of Aquaworld, an enormous swimming pool complex. Clothed in swim suits, clutching towels, they do what they’re told. At first hilarious and fun, their predicament transforms slowly into a strange and powerful reality. Teeth-grinding, disturbing, hilarious and addictive, Rotozaza’s ‘minimal masterpiece’ explores the thin line between theatrical illusion and deceit.
