Lord of Beef

RADA, Bloomsbury

Ieva Misevičiūtė

An hour-long performance incorporating a series of impersonations; dance and speech acts depicting objects, people, phenomena, and philosophical concepts. Lord of Beef goes back to the primal mimetic act that lies at the very basis of theatre and comedy, exploring theatrical artifice, ritual and a space of compromised logic where dance and language meet. The last impersonation of the show is based on the Butoh tongue dance technique, where the performer’s body gradually surrenders to the movement itself.

Lord of Beef co-directed and Butoh training by Vangeline.
