Theatrical improvisation from the absurdist clown
This article is from 2011.
Billed as ‘a dark theatrical comedy’, Mink’s Making Light is painfully bereft of solid laughs. Remove the expectation of comedy from the equation and it’s a weirdly fulfilling theatre piece, as Mink free-associates and travels to very dark places. Due to the improvisational nature of the performance, it’s hard to say exactly what to expect, but it won’t be easily forgotten.
