Zero : The Clod Ensemble

A turbulent mix of dance, music and visual theatre, Zero is the biggest project to date from Suzy Willson and Paul Clark’s ground-breaking Clod Ensemble. Zero is a major 2013 commission from Sadler’s Wells and Brighton Festival in partnership with South East Dance, produced in association with Fuel.

Zero is a world where nothing is certain, where women can be tigers and men snakes and where families, marriages and friendships are laced with sibling rivalries, frustrated desires and murderous ambitions. Visceral and emotional, Zero features an explosive cast of eleven performers and seven musicians - all at the mercy of the stormy weather.

The piece draws on an eclectic range of references - from legendary theatre teacher Jacques Lecoq’s observation that ‘everything moves’, to the Blues, to Hurricane Katrina and King Lear - all contained within Clod Ensemble’s distinctive aesthetic frame.

Legendary harmonica-playing Bluesman Johnny Mars and trombonist Annie Whitehead join Paul Clark’s exemplary band of musicians. The band takes to the stage to play a set of original bittersweet songs, with lyrics written by Clark and queer New Yorker Peggy Shaw - “the kitchen walls are bleeding”, “there’s a cow on the rooftop” and “Daddy, how much do you love me” – to create a distinctive, unclassifiable sound that draws on blues, punk, jazz and electronica.
