“Equally disgusting and brilliant”, this is how a member of the jury of Het TheaterFestival 2022 described this unique performance. It's a fact that the British cult artist, comedian and cleaner Kim Noble leaves nobody unmoved.
In Lullaby for Scavengers he shares the stage with a cynical squirrel, a (real !) dead fox and a few scavengers, among them Maggot who he adopted as a daughter. The animals are alter egos. Noble, who identifies himself as a manic-depressive loser who lived in a sewer and in a tree, draws a merciless self-portrait with them. He reflects on wishes and dreams, on loneliness and death. And he reaches out to everyone on the fringes of society. His notes from the margin possess a poignant beauty.
This show – between video art, stand-up comedy and performance- was selected for the TheaterFestival 2022 and was showered with praise home and abroad.
