The Machine: Third Angel Theatre
Third Angel return to the Crucible Studio with an in–the–round theatre production of Georges Perec’s innovative and mischievous 1968 radio play, the first ever production of this remarkable piece in English.
The Machine is a subtle comedy about language, meaning, thought and silence, explored through the deconstruction of Goethe’s poem The Ramblers Lullaby II. An inventive, irreverent and intoxicating linguistic dissection of the poem, the play uses computer programming protocols, randomisation, Beckett, algebra, French, proverbs, Italian, Lewis Caroll, geography, biography, Nietzsche, Napoleon, Schopenhauer, Verlain, Schiller, Rimbaud, Brecht, Dickenson, Neruda, Borges, German, Kirkegaard and KFC to achieve its goal.
Heralded as one of the most exciting companies to emerge on the British theatre scene in recent years, Third Angel combines performance, text, and soundtrack to create thrilling, contemporary theatre. Not afraid to ask difficult questions, this is theatre that is at once moving and entertaining.
