Just For Show is about showing and showing off in a world where looking good has become more essential than being good; where faking it has become synonymous with making it and where beautiful lies hide grubby truths.
DV8 Physical Theatre’s latest production, Just For Show, uses virtual projection, visual illusion and word play to explore the importance of appearance and image in our lives. It has all the trademark elements of previous productions by this world-renowned company – extraordinary physicality, witty text, dark humour and beautiful observations of human behaviour.
Co-produced by Romaeuropa Festival and Accademia Filarmonica, Rome; National Theatre, London; Théâtre de la Ville and the Festival d’Automne, Paris and spielzeiteuropa / Berliner Festspiele, Berlin. Commissioned by Brighton Festival. An Artsadmin associated project. Research and development supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
