We’re all starring in the movie of our life. Day by day, selfie after selfie, post after post. Papering over the cracks of whatever darkness lies beneath. It’s exhausting. You deserve a break.
So settle back in your seat. Bask in the glow of the big screen. See the heroine smile out at you, all dewy-eyed, as the camera zooms in. And in. And in. Get set for a rollercoaster ride through the anxieties of an unsettlingly ordinary woman’s existence.
Razor sharp innovators Made In China make an eagerly anticipated return following the “breathtakingly subversive” **** Double Double Act (Time Out), “murderously entertaining” **** Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me (The Guardian) and “marvellously unusual” **** Gym Party (The Times).
Super Duper Close Up tells the story of a 21st century woman’s journey through a labyrinth of click-bait and pop cliché and via an infinite stream of frozen pouts and desperate smiles.
An explosion of live film-making, hypnotic movement and looping memoir fiction, it asks: what’s a girl to do? How is everything so perfect yet coming apart at the seams? And whose damned fault is it? Drenched in the fake light of a thousand insta-filters, Super Duper Close Up flutters its eyelids at you and howls its furious questions at the moon. And of course, at you.
Are you ready for your close-up?
**** The Stage
‘This is a show with an exterior that glistens and twinkles like a Faberge egg, but its insides are filled with a swirling molten pool of sadness and rage.’
***** Spy in the Stalls
‘They have pioneered a new way to articulate the hidden sources of our insecurities, and have transformed them into something that is witty, visually striking and politically engaged.’
***** The Reviews Hub
‘a controlled and painstakingly crafted intensity that never fails to hold your attention’
