Swine of the Times

Swine of the Times

Meet the piggies at the troff... they sing songs, say prayers and even mime...you may recognise these swine of our times.

Overview

Emerging character-chameleon Alice Wolff-Whitehouse presents her debut one-woman-show 'SWINE OF THE TIMES' - based on the anxieties around 21st century liberalism. She looks at the grotesque nature of privilege in the UK through a warped and colourful lens.

An investigator into quirks Alice employs her skills in physical comedy, dance and song to bring to life a series of flawed and quintessentially British characters. Nurturing a psycho-physical approach to performance, Alice explores how voice, physicality, imagination and impulse work together to create embodied character.

The piece is made up of a series of short vignettes, each with a new character and another perspective. From Lileth the pious devotee to songstress Vlogger Gigi, Hipster-buffoon Caz, a seasoned Politician with his new wide-eyed Whip and a colony of butteries stage a mighty revolution.

With a BA from East 15 Acting School Alice co-founded all-female devising company CapaTaro Theatre back in 2015, and now, with an MA from Rose Bruford College, she has founded new character-comedy company Mighty Mammal Theatre.

Join this mighty mammal for a piggle giggle, maybe you'll find your own inner swine in this kaleidoscopic play of mine!
