Absolutely, Awesome, Affirmative

 

NO LONGER GOING AHEAD AS PLANNED

Due to COVID-19, Scottish Government guidelines and our commitment to safeguarding audiences and those we work with, it is with great sadness that we announce our production of Absolutely, Awesome, Affirmative will no longer be going ahead as planned.

INFORMATION FOR TICKET HOLDERS:

All Absolutely, Awesome, Affirmative ticket holders will be contacted either by us or by the box office from which they purchased a ticket and offered a full refund or other options.  For further information please do contact: boxoffice@nationaltheatrescotland.com

We would like to thank our partners, venues, funders, supporters and audiences for their continued generous support.

Our thoughts are with everyone who is struggling at this difficult time.

 

Step into a world of constant self-refinement. Two performers engage in a continuous verbal scuffle, bringing streams of empty promises into a gradually saturated space. Filled with voices and bodies, everything slowly crumbles into a non-place, stripped of meaning, of truth.

Absolutely, Awesome, Affirmative is a radical new project from Nic Green, exploring how we believe – in fact, in nature, in truth, and in ourselves – and how that belief can be targeted, twisted, and shaped into whatever we want it to be. Part TED talk, part shopping channel special, part showbiz hypnotism, the stage becomes a post-truth world of opulent theatricality, visual flair, and driving soundscapes.

In a world drowning in a flow of news, expert opinions, and more-or-less believable facts, is there any real meaning left? Or does everything stand completely void, lone symbols of the things they once signified?
