Through subversive humour, Composed plays with what happens when the composition cracks.

Composed is an investigation into social conventions, contained fury and work.

A high octane show dealing with apologetic addresses, revved-up entrepreneurial spiel and whether or not you are asking for it. Examining the relationship between a spokesperson and their institution, Rosa performs an in-house announcement, a thank-you to the sponsors, a warm-up act…

Through subversive humour, Composed interrogates theatre rituals, fantasy and institutional violence. And plays with what happens when the composition cracks.

A relaxed performance with captions and audio description. Ear defenders will be available.
