With backgrounds in long-form improv, performance art and music, graduates of Queen Mary University of London Rebecca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole have joined forces as SH!T THEATRE, writing, performing and signing on together since May 2010, whilst exploring the political, the personal and the down-right perverted. Our work is informed by our trained disciplines of music, performance art and long-form improvisation. We consider performing the ‘sh!t’ to be theatrically political and use different theatrical and artistic devises such as dance, though we are not trained dancers. Our embracing of the ‘sh!t’ challenges preconceptions that, on stage, only virtuosity has traditionally been given a voice. Additionally, we work with an aesthetic which comprises of found materials; the intentionally ‘sh!t’ DIY appearance and donning of grotesque clown make-up challenges us and the audience to find the common ground beyond the alienating exterior. Our work consists of political satire; the personal; comedy; music; physical theatre, documentary practice and frequently explores the meta, in that we examine our theatrical practice on stage.
