The new show by Nick Field.
Unicorns, have you noticed they’re everywhere right now? As is the far right. Right?
This hilarious, rollicking, razor-sharp show asks what the simultaneous rise of these phenomenons tells us. Hunting the omnipresent one-horned icon across civilisations to explore how ideologies spread and our imaginations become capitalised, Nick Field envisions a dystopian Unicorn Fascist State Britain. When the unicorns take control, there’s only one thing to do – throw a party. That’s an order!
Unicorn Party is a very contemporary response to the crazy times we live in. Unexpected, thoughtful and at times gloriously bonkers, Unicorn Party is a riff of satirical comedy, power ballads, myth-making, and copious glitter, to take a sneaky gawp at what happens when escapism becomes inescapable.
⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Fascinating’, The Scotsman
‘Part dystopian satire, part self-disclosing performance lecture, Unicorn Party is an unapologetically raw solo piece from multidisciplinary artist Nick Field’ Exeunt
