Tiny Little Band presents an experimental piece comprised of motivational speeches and TED-style talks which ask, how do we define success? More…
A motivational speech. An ad for cheese chips. An ancient Greek hero. A desire to do good, to live right, to not fail, to make the world better, to find happiness, to find comfort, to find meaning, to find, to find, to find, success, success, SUCCESS. 'Your Hair Looked Great' is a kaleidoscopic head trip through the social and cultural forces that shape our sense of what life is and what it should be.
"The writer parrots TED Talks...by nailing every telling detail, down to bullet points. The trouble lies in the fact that—as clever as the satire is—he's making us sit through the damn things...There's quite a bit of extremely good writing, and as a production, 'Great' is a lovely object: beautifully performed, smartly scored and well staged. But all this tailor-made emptiness...takes an experiential toll...It mimics vacancy so perfectly it can stun the audience into insensibility." Full Review
See it if you don't mind more disjointed theatre, a reflection of the humorous banalities of life, a strange amalgamation show of sorts.
Don't see it if you absolutely want a traditional theatre experience, you don't want to think about your day to day life while in the theatre.
See it if you're into new, postmodern theatre that explores big questions without giving any answers and don't mind when things get a little dry.
Don't see it if you want something a little more entertaining with a little more riotous laughter.
