RUDO is about people who have lived with roughness, physical effort and personal challenges taken to an absurd extreme.

In the show, a rough man creates towers and figures with heavy wooden boxes. The fragile constructions where he climbs to do precarious balancing acts are the result of desire and illusion.

The live music (violin and cello) is a lyrical contrast to the titanic effort of the character, who grunts, sweats and does not flag in his delirium.

In RUDO the spectator is trapped inside an intimate space, in a wooden set which appears to be about to fall, (as is the main character with his balancing tricks). This proximity to the stage invites us to share the dangers and the longing for life.

Intimate, precarious, risky and tender

Performed indoor/outdoor venues

Rudo is performed in a circular space surrounded by a wooden setting with capacity for 120 persons. A flat and smooth area, minimum 11 x 11 m. is required, with a height of at least 5m.

Duration: 60 mins
