Quizoola! is an extraordinary improvised performance in which three performers in shabby clown make-up ask and answer questions for a continuous six hours. Dark, hilarious, absurd and intimate, it is a game that survives from moment to moment, a comical and sometimes brutal interrogation that soon gets out of hand. Set inside a circle of bare electric light bulbs, Quizoola! is a live negotiation of what is real and what is performed of what to ask and how to answer.
Quizoola! explores the need people have for knowledge, certainty and definition through language. Sometimes whispered, sometimes yelled, an answer must always be attempted to an avalanche of questions from pop trivia through personal secrets, via pub-quiz and twisted philosophical search. The audience is free to arrive, leave and return at any point as this marathon game of questions and answers unfolds.
Based on a text of 2000 questions by Tim Etchells, Quizoola! was originally co-commissioned by the NRLA and ICA Live Arts in 1996.
