Cultural and political history piece leaves deep impression
Genealogy combines with a cultural and political history of the modern world and some benign audience participation in this charmingly imperfect play. From a drum and bass club in Lisbon in 2010, it traces the (quite literally) unbelievable 123-year life of Grierson’s ‘great grandfather’, Arthur Craven. The conceptual script doesn’t always convince, but Grierson’s performative magnetism leaves a deep impression.
