DANIEL GOUGH'S controversial theatre group, THE SUICIDE ENSEMBLE Present THE REALITY EVENT: SUICIDE + GAME at Melbourne

BY Sarah Guppy - This Much Talent | 17-Sep-2015
THE REALITY EVENT has been called, “A precursor to what theatre is about to become,” (Absolute Theatre 2015): an immersive performance experiment; a tense and extremely visceral exploration of the ever-blurring line between reality and construction. The Suicide Ensemble invites you to indulge in competition and witness grisly acts of violence in two back-to- back theatre events at the TUXEDO CAT from the 24th - 29th September 2015.
Venue: Tuxedo Cat
Address: 293-299 La Trobe St, Melbourne
Date: 24th – 29th September
Time: Doors: 7:15pm

Led by Daniel Gough, The Suicide Ensemble are presenting this performance experiment as the culmination of over a year’s work. Together these 7 artists make work which obliterates the boundaries between theatre and its audience with astounding results, from devastating to uplifting.

On the highly controversial nature of the work, Gough has stated, “It’s something to be both nervous and excited about. Every audience copes with it differently but always passionately. In truth, it’s actually impossible to know how it will go.”

This is Gough’s second appearance at the Melbourne Fringe, following 2014’s MONSTER, which was met with critical acclaim and shaking nerves; a trademark of Gough’s work.
