Multiple Organism

 

Review


If you come to the fringe festival for bizarre, creative, and “what-the-fuck-did-I-just-watch” theatre, this daring show is for you. Queer, raunchy, Robot-Chicken-type humour meets on-stage nudity and ingenious and complex projection art. The plotline—surely written on LSD—tips its hat to Alice falling down a rabbithole into Wonderland. Here, audiences tumble down down down into another world where inanimate objects come to life and … well, you’ll see. Initially disjointed and disorienting, Multiple Organism gathers more and more inertia as it goes on, and leaves audiences wanting more of its bawdy weirdness. Reviewed by Bryan Saunders.

    I’m a little disappointed with this one. Actually no, I was REALLY disappointed. I was really looking forward to this one based on their shows from previous years. Their problem isn’t their originality or creativity, those they have in bags, I think the problem was that there wasn’t a clear story or message; everything was just too random and a little too sexual. None of the parts of the show made any sense as a whole, individually the parts were great. it felt like they were merely throwing out new media and new techniques and hoping something sticks. Even when the show had ended we didn’t know because it was that abrupt.

    Although I still really enjoyed this one, it was definitely the weakest I’ve seen by Mind of Snail. The biggest issue was there wasn’t really a clear story line. It was a little too random and all over the place. Again, I still really enjoyed it and was definitely glad I went and saw it, and would even recommend it to fellow Fringers 🙂 No one surpasses them in creativity and the mastery of puppetry! That in itself is worth it.
