Armed with wigs and wit, Only Speak When Spoken To is Meraki Collective’s bright and playful dance-theatre show that takes on the rules around social etiquette. It’s about the comedy in the contradictions & exposing the consequences of breaking the rules.
Step into a world where the tannoy is king, where suit jackets come to life and where the performers poke fun at what makes for polite behaviour. Through a combination of clowning, puppetry, movement and live looping, the performers explore what rules are placed on us and what happens when we deviate from the norm.
We invite our audience to laugh with us and at us, as we play with the rules that govern polite behaviour.
