This proof of concept video for PanGottic’s “Logic of Nothing” show is sheer brilliance. They spent their second R&D period at Prema Arts Centre a couple of weeks ago, focusing on the circus aspect of the show and exploring ways of interacting and combining the circus skills and contraptions. Joe Clarke came along on the last day and, has again, put together a brilliant video.
Welcome to the world of Oscar Boffin; a slightly obsessive compulsive hoarder, inventor and a man who has filled his home with gadgets and contraptions, to make his life easier (or harder, depending on how well they work).
Logic of Nothing is a Heath Robinson/Rube Goldberg inspired piece of non-verbal Circus-Theatre. An exploration into a relationship between man, circus and contraption using a blend of clown, juggling, magic and invention, all set to a unique live soundtrack of sounds and samples taken from the contraptions themselves.
The show premiers at Circomedia in Bristol in October 2013.
