Worst Enemies

This format was developed for the Karlsruhe International Improvisation Festival 2019 by Alex Fradera. It was premiered in Newcastle as part of Let Us Make It Up To You. The format involves short-form pieces used to explore attitudes and relationships, in the spirit of the Life Game or the Shell Game.

There are some people out there who frustrate us… anger us… even frighten us. But can we see things through their eyes? In this show, our performers will step into the shoes of their worst enemies, inhabiting characters with very different temperaments, passions and moralities to their own. The show will be a process of catharsis, involving laughter, horror, and maybe, just maybe, true understanding.
