About: Sight is The Sense That Dying People Tend To Lose First

22 – 24 November | 8.30pm & 10.15pm

Sight is the Sense that Dying People Tend to Lose First is a long free-associating monologue that tumbles from topic to topic to create a vast, failing iteration and explanation of the world. Comical in its apparent naiveté and preposterously encyclopedic in scope Sight is the Sense… explores the absurdity and horror of consciousness as it tries and fails to seize and define everything that it encounters. A shifting, personal and decidedly imprecise taxonomy, the project might be thought of as an explanation of the world as if for (or by) a child, a psychotic or a Martian.

‘curious, captivating and hypnotic’ **** FINANCIAL TIMES

Sight is the Sense… is written and directed by Tim Etchells, leader of the UK’s celebrated experimental performance group Forced Entertainment. Etchells is also an acclaimed visual artist and his first novel – The Broken World – will be published by Heinemann, UK in July 2008. The text is performed by Jim Fletcher, the extraordinary New York-based actor who many people will know from his recent role in Gatz and his work with Richard Maxwell’s New York City Players.
