QUEENS ON A RUG

A phantasmagorical mess and a durational attempt, Queens on a Rug oscillates somewhere between high art and mediocre entertainment. Combining Gunn’s autobiographical humour and Lloyd’s unpredictable choreography, Queens on a Rug has a slapstick energy and a deep devotion to the ridiculous in the face of encroaching tragedy. Originally premiering during Next Move at Chunky Move in 2016, this is the 3 hour version we weren’t allowed to do.  You can leave whenever you want.

Directed, Choreographed and Performed by Nicola Gunn and Jo Lloyd
Sound Design by Duane Morrison
Costume Design by Shio Otani, Nicola Gunn and Jo Lloyd

“Witty, joyous and disconcerting, Mermermer blends the irreverent, absurd and everyday into a quirky style of comedic physical theatre… Unpredictable and mesmerising.”
Eammon Kelly, The Australian

“Solo theatre star Gunn’s extraordinary talent for revealing, self-effacing comedy is clearly manifest here, moulded by and matched to the playful fluidity of Lloyd’s choreographic approach.”
Paul Ransom, DANCE informa
