We’re all in a relationship with food…and it’s complicated.

Worst Absurd blends dance, physical comedy, and a whole lot of kale, in a satirical exploration of our obsession with the F word. Witness this century’s great love affair and gorge on a theatrical feast of everything “delicious”.

Directed by: Claudia Marciano
Devised and Performed by: Sam Cornforth, Jenni Stewart, Hayley May Muirhead and Claudia Marciano


★★★★ “a pleasingly disgusting orgy of mess…Their whole hearted commitment to the cause of comedy is admirable. And funny. Very funny” Broadway Baby

WINNER: Fourth Monkey Experimental Fringe Award

About the company

A collection of clowns and one very dazed producer, WORST ABSURD take on the world through a blend of dance, comedy and object theatre. We make loud, bold and accessible work that engages its audience in contemporary social discussions through a collage of witty gestural choreography, clown and eclectic soundtracks. We place importance on entertaining and uplifting our audience as well as provoking how they think about current issues and conversations.
