Gym Party

Gym Party

Made in China

These are the brains of Those Who Have Passed. Those who could not keep up. Those who lost, the disqualified, the eliminated-from-heats. The dead: the dead-to-us-now.

Amidst the litter of brains of Those Who Have Passed, Jess, Chris and Ira vie for success.

Gym Party is at once a delicate and violent three-way contest and a hilariously confused call-to-arms. It will explore the psychology of winning and the nature of pride: the desire to be and get the most, in all its triumphant and ugly incarnations.

 Gym Party is presented here as a work-in-progress showing. Participation in awkward teenager dance following the performance is optional.

 Not since Forced Entertainment burst on to the scene almost 30 years ago has a company arrived with such a fully formed and distinctive voice.
