Neither the time nor the place

SH!T THEATRE HAVE BEEN CENSORED!!! We got about 10 seconds into our "Burqa King" piece last night at Mutiny's 'Fashion On Trial' before some of the organisers decided it was too offensive. All credit to Lola and Deb, they heard us out and gave us their secret underground support, but the others now assume we are dirty dirty racists. Still, we hope they ask us back - we generally really like the evenings and the commission-style set up we've got going on helps us get off our arses and make new work.

The piece itself, we believe, is not offensive in any way. It is an attempt on our behalf to address an issue which is prevalent in our area of London, and indeed a reaction to the fact they tried to censor us in the first place. We are not Islamaphobes. We just think wearing newspaper burqas is pretty funny. In the context of the piece. Not in general. Though maybe... No, definitely not.
Religion. Not. Funny.

Though we heard this awesome Pope joke the other day...

SO, if you want to see SH!T THEATRE in our un-censored glory, why not come back to THE RESISTANCE GALLERY on THURSDAY 28TH OCTOBER for AiR Supply's TEST LAUNCH? Posters and more details etc. coming soon.

(Thanks to Lewis Church for the picture. Obviously spent too many hours on a megabus this week. Check him out this Friday/ Saturday at 'Emergency' in Manchester: )
