What is it?
Little Soldier Productions presents Derailed at London’s Ovalhouse, from Wednesday 21st February to Saturday 3rd March.
International theatre company Little Soldier, raise a middle finger to Brexit with a blow-out gig-theatre leaving party for anyone who has ever hoped to make a difference.
Twelve years after arriving in the UK, with too many heartbreaks to count, one child, half a marathon, five drum lessons and a permanently overdrawn bank account, Patricia and Mercè are feeling the post-Brexit blues.
So what else is there to do apart from host the mother of all leaving parties with gazpacho, live rock music, dancing, Theresa May, pig costumes, the Dalai Lama and cava to toast an uncertain future? Fuelled by rage at the state of world, they ask the audience to help turn anger into positive action and crowd-source a new online petition for each show.
Following the Stage Award-winning The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, Little Soldier explore the forms, advantages and limitations of protest, from the new digital era of clicktivism and getting angry on Facebook, to their own personal attempts at activism as they look back on their time together in Britain and how they could have made things better.
Bringing their distinctive brand of clowning, comedy, music and audience interaction to the mix, the revolution is about to get messy…
Little Soldier Productions was founded by award-winning performers Patricia Rodríguez and Mercè Ribot. They are clowning, devising and physical theatre specialists, who have toured extensively nationally and abroad (US, Mexico, Spain and Poland).
Little Soldier’s recent productions include critically-acclaimed shows The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha (Stage Award 2014) and You and Me (Argus Angel 2013).
