2001: A Space Odyssey got weird
Surreal from start to finish, It’s Uniformation Day aims to analyse ideas of happiness, human frailty and relationships in modern life. Other than that, it’s hard to say what happened. The three actors are our representatives on a strange rocket mission into space that will allow them to end it all following bad experiences with love. They must complete a series of bizarre tasks in order to decide whether life is worth living or a complete and utter waste of time. This requires a messload of plastic, cardboard boxes and dance moves worthy of B*Witched, as well as a healthy dose of audience interaction – not for those who prefer to be a quiet spectator.
An enthusiastic display culminating in a dance display involving what appears to be clay phalluses (note: The List believes they were intended to be rockets, given the accompanying lyrical content but suppressed giggling did ensue), this is a performance which remains a head-scratcher even on conclusion.
