A Delicate Situation
What Lies Within - a close-knit congregation are tested when their leader receives a revelation from a higher being that a member of the group lacks commitment. Together with his partner he must flush out the accused and purify them through the mortification of the flesh to cleanse the group – with devastating results.
What Lies Within takes as its launch point qualities of power, leadership and exploitation within cult-like mentality and grooming. It is a daring and dark tale that addresses a timeless set of questions about human nature, ideology and our desperate need to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Complex in its structure and its seriousness, this work is more concerned with moving beneath what seems obvious and entertaining. Humour and overt theatricality display the unique behaviours’ of an associated group, before moving towards gradually exposing the brutal underpinnings at the centre of what appears to be 'normal' psychological group dynamics and behaviours. It is a cathartic and aggressive work, honing in on acute and sinister character roles, complex choreography and compelling sound design. With a dark and macabre environment, rife with imagery bordering on something akin to religious iconography, this work will evoke a different and viscerally discomfiting kinaesthesia. 'What Lies Within' will be a powerful study of demagoguery, ethical distortions and victimisation.
