Description

Pick Up. An intimate piece inspired by the collective truth of living with addiction. The Uninvited Party excavate through the Dirty laundry of both the direct and indirect victims of dependency. Through physical and tactile expression, Pick Up offers an insight into a fast, free flowing observation of shame, loss and conflict. This performance guides you through the raucous, ecstatic highs and claustrophobic, desolate lows from the perspectives of those affected. Familiar or not, softly or loudly, we invite you on a trip up down and around the washing basket of fixation, hanging out their experiences to dry.

Incredibly moving and powerful piece, that takes on an extremely challenging topic and more than does justice to it. Inventive, visceral, intelligent, and formally sophisticated; daring writing, performed with total conviction.

Highly recommended. Dazzling performances. A truly original and creative approach to exploring the tough subject of addiction. Moving, though-provoking, memorable. Words and images from this show will stay with me for a long time.
