Beyond The Ridiculous

beyondridiculous
On Saturday we ran Bristol’s regular fooling night as it continued its tour around Bristol, taking over The Loco Klub, the amazing new alternative performance venue under Temple Meads Station for 2 nights: Friday 27th and Saturday 28th November.

What is this ‘Fooling’ that I speak of, and what would happen to us if we went along to Beyond The Ridiculous?

Well, fooling is a staggeringly versatile form of solo improvisation where the performer walks into the empty space and plays with whatever appears. We all have voices in our heads. People we’ve met, aspects of ourselves, bizarre and banal creatures cobbled from emotions and memories. Instead of wishing they’d keep the noise down in there, the fools of Beyond The Ridiculous invite them out to play!

Expertly facilitated by Fool Shaman Holly Stoppit, Beyond The Ridiculous is a chance to see courageous performers leaping off cliffs into the limitless possibilities of each moment. You may laugh, cry or stare dumbfounded and for once the voices in your head will discover they are not alone.

Need any more convincing? Here’s some satisfied audience comments from Beyond The Ridiculous 13/11/15:

“I have definitely never seen anything like that before.”

“It was so good, I spilled beer on myself.”

“I feel like I can never enter normal civilisation again.”
