2// a performance by Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead

Rachel Mars and Greg Wohead take Pixar’s 22 Rules for Storytelling and How Stories Make Us Human, make them fuck each other, kidnap the resulting baby and dance out a prophecy of its future life before its barely opened eyes.

A reflective consideration of how and why we construct narrative.

“Imagine a bullfight without the bull: it would be a set of aesthetic manoeuvres, pretty twirls and pirouettes and so on – but there’d be no danger. The bull, crucially, brings danger to the party… that’s what the real is: the tip of the bull’s horn.”
Tom McCarthy

We promise no less than 120 minutes.
We promise real fictional characters.
We promise a plot.
We promise a surprise twist.
We promise a rupture.
We promise an ending.
We promise a rupture.

“It’s horrible. Brilliant, scintillating, guillotine catching the sunlight as it falls dazzling, but also horrible.”
Maddy Costa, Exeunt

“Story #1 is like a live grenade thrown at television: a thrilling exploration of truth, fiction and the strange space between.”
Jonathan Wakeham, Screenwriter
