60 Acts by Wendy Houstoun:
A fast paced, slow motion, free fall through 40 years of personal and political history.
Summoning up world events, discarded dances, unsung heroes and futile gestures 60 ACTS is more stand up than dance around.
In this new work Houstoun casts herself as a spiritual bingo caller summoning up her own ancestral anarchy to celebrate 40 years of treading the boards. It is a declaration of love for theatre and a re-enactment of personal, professional and political collisions. All told by an analogue idiot in digital clothing echoing Twitter’s plaintive cry: “What’s Happening?”
