Rub A Duck

Written and performed by Frank Wo/Men Collective at Blue Genie Art Bazaar.

Rub A Duck is an experimental multidisciplinary physical theatre work—a slippery, mad-paced pressure cooker social experiment in real time. Thirteen collaborators ranging in multi-talented abilities—dancers, actors, singers, and design artists —dynamically co-fabricate a trippy theatrical experience that ultimately mimics and mocks human subconscious.

Set in a wet'n'wild dreamscape, Rub A Duck sets forth unaccustomed perspectives, absurd notions, and sensorial stimulation through movement, text and a cappella soundscapes. Devised collectively by multitalented and multi-discipline art makers, Rub A Duck will deliver genre-bending, mind-turning entertainment that will leave you soaked and satisfied.
