The Red Bastard aka Eric Davis Set for Brady Arts Centre, Oct 4
America's number one bouffon Eric Davis - aka Red Bastard - will perform his dangerous, seductive comedy monster in his London debut this October for ONE NIGHT ONLY at the Brady Arts Centre, 192 - 196 Hanbury St, London E1 5HU on October 4th at 8pm. Presented by Adamotions. For bookings, visit Adamotions.com.
After 5-star reviews and sold out shows across North America, Europe and Australia, Red Bastard continued with epic success at The Edinburgh Fringe this year, receiving 5-Star reviews from The Scotsman, The List, The New Current, Fest Mag, British Theatre Guide, Edinburgh Festivals, The Public Review, Metro and The Skinny.
Experience this exquisite monstrosity as he delicately leads you through a no-holds-barred show demanding to know nothing less than the existential query, "Who the hell do you think you are?" Lines will be crossed and laughs will be had in this interactive feast of biting wit, mischievous improvisation, and physical prowess.
He is not man or woman; he is not human or animal. He has come to play with us, pretending that he is a teacher of the theater of life. Red Bastard spreads throughout the audience like a big red virus, daring us to impress him with beautiful movements and vocal exercises of our own. He demands that we be "bigger," that we "go beyond." He commands, "risk, and you are rewarded." The audience finds itself changing seats, yelling, posing, singing-we are pulled into participating, and the consequences of not participating ("eek! he might touch me!") feel delightfully dire.
Audiences should be prepared for anything to happen in this interactive show, in which Red Bastard engages the audience in master class of raw conversation, provocations, traps, rewards, and catch 22's- encouraging risk and personal discovery.
