Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster by Nicola Gunn

At some point, everybody has to draw the line between good and evil, right and wrong. And sometimes, that line involves a duck.

Nicola Gunn’s piece is part philosophical monologue, part whimsical dance performance, wholly original.

A woman sees a man throwing stones at a sitting duck and she yells at him. What follows is a dissection of the excruciating realms of human behaviour and a navigation of the moral and ethical complexities of intervention.

Gunn is an award-winning writer, director, performer and designer.

Combining text, choreography and visual art, Gunn makes contemporary performance work in response to a self-generated impulse to tell a story or explore a form.

Dizzyingly witty
Sometimes there is a work that is so refreshingly provoking that it leaves you in a state of euphoria
