Probe, Small Talk at Soho Theatre
Small Talk sees Antonia Grove embodying the personae of a series of American movie actresses whose words are fed to her through earphones. In a succession of staged events, Grove strives to fulfil the chameleon’s desire to be all things to all people. Our sense of reality is distorted as she becomes increasingly illusive and unpredictable, and we witness her rollercoaster journey through states of control, being controlled and losing control.
With high class singing and full-throttle dancing, this bravura performance has all the hallmarks of a modern classic that audiences will find compelling, funny and darkly disturbing.
Stand-up singing, sit down talking, monosyllabic dancing and fast talking movement make a daring and virtuosic display of disguise and derangement, specially created by Wendy Houstoun.
