Beautiful, grotesque, absurd - an elusive journey of surprising twists and turns; two people lost in a desert, a ventriloquist and his dummy, a bite of cannibalism... all this in twelve short plays by Peter Oswald. Acclaimed poet Alice Oswald, versatile performers Peter Oswald and Josephine Larsen (with seventeen years of experience in erotic dance, film, theatre and cabaret in Europe), and skilled musician Nemo Jones (of Faithless) combine poetry, live music, drama and dance in performances that embrace the realms between the forms. Oswald's large scale work for Mark Rylance at The Globe and for the National Theatre has hugely influenced this small scale work which weaves together the extremes of physical theatre with language. After successful runs at the English Theatre Berlin and Soho Theatre, London and advisory direction from Tim Supple, Attention Seekers is overjoyed to bring Short Shrifts for two weeks to The Brewery.
