Figs in Wigs are often onstage but how did we get here and how do we leave?

Often Onstage is an offbeat facetious romp that explores the ins and outs of theatre through the medium of dance. Expect nods to the new, bows to the bard, blood baths and drag kings.

With one step forward and two hundred steps back, this choreographic exercise in comings and goings gleefully disrupts traditional theatrical conventions, unearthing dormant anxieties about life choices along the way.

What if the only thing keeping you going are inspirational quotes and a subsidised income from your side project as a Backstreet Boys tribute act? It’s only a matter of time before we sell out, and we don’t mean tickets…

“Madly enjoyable.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“Frantic, physical and flushed… This is anti-theatre of the highest order.” – What’s On Stage

“Funny and inventive, a delightful hour of comedy.” – The Stage

“There is a life-affirming joyfulness to their routines, which fuse a happy daftness with more formally complex and layered repetitions.” – Total Theatre
