Slap Talk by Action Hero
Inspired by the self-aggrandising of boxers at the pre-fight weigh in, Slap Talk is a verbal sparring match that is both a linguistic version of the fight itself and a reflection upon the violence present in everyday language.
Speaking to each other and to the audience via a live feed from a camera to a monitor, the performers rant, insult and threaten each other in a scripted version of a pre-fight press conference crossed with a 24 hour rolling news channel.

Over 6 hours, an autocue scrolls a continuous barrage of passive aggressive violence of lovers talking, the hard sell of a shopping channel, the anger of the fire and brimstone preacher, the subtle violence of middle class one-upmanship.

The audience are free to enter and leave at any time during the performance.

"ultimate discursive arena, interrogating the construction and application of dialogue and performance... intimate, engaging and unsettling work" This is Tomorrow
"see why this maverick company, with its engaging DIY aesthetic, is attracting so much attention" The Guardian
Developed with the support of Caravan and BIOS, Athens. Slap Talk began in The Darkroom, China Plate's development space for writing and performance. Action Hero are supported by Theatre Bristol's Company Producer, Mel Scaffold.
