Set inside a circle of bare electric light bulbs, this extraordinary performance is a marathon game of questions and answers. Over a number of hours three performers in the shabby make-up of yesterday’s clowns interrogate each other with a text of 2000 questions while the audience are free to arrive, leave and return at any point. From pop-facts through personal secrets, to pub-quiz and twisted philosophical search, Quizoola! is a live negotiation of what is real and what is performed It is a game which survives from moment to moment, a comical and sometimes brutal interrogation that soon gets out of hand.
