What Does Stuff Do?

Date: Tuesday, Jul 16 2019 - Saturday, Jul 20 2019
Venue: Tobacco Factory Theatres: Spielman Theatre

Return for this popular and award-winning show from juggler, water-bender, and part-time deep thinker Robin Boon Dale.

What Does Stuff Do? is a TED-Talk-esque performance about the relationships between people and things, which pivots between absurdity and profundity.

Guiding you through his mind and body of research, Robin uses insights from his circus training alongside ideas borrowed from object-oriented philosophy, to offer new ways of thinking about the physical world.

With a curious array of communicative tools including liquid manipulation, performance ping pong, and a motivational speech delivered by a man in swimming trunks, this eccentric renegade philosophy lecture flourishes into an astounding circo-odyssey.

Co-production with Circomedia, where Robin also trained.

July 16-20, 8pm, £12. Ages 12+. 55 mins. For more info, visit
