Step right up! Step right up! Vengeance, horror, sex and power.
That’s right folk, for a limited time only, Dread Fools presents a feast of grotesque catharsis without redemption. In a rare appearance we bring to you the untamed vengeance of the Furies.
For your viewing pleasure: the regulation of the human body from creation to genetic manipulation.
Conceived by Sophie Amieva and Katerina Marcelja

Production: notAmuse Theater
Dread Fools adopts the Penny Gaff vignette format in a slapstick horror sideshow questioning the exertion of power through the regulation of the human body.
Who writes the story? Who makes the rules? Where do monsters come from? How do they reproduce? Who decides? Where does the power lie and how is it exerted?
Two worlds coexist, intertwine and collide; the reality show of the performance of power which is expanding with blind arrogance and the mythical monster world ruled by Furies with a vengeance that transcends morality. The Furies are feeling the pressure and they are about to snap. In the Bouffon traditions NotAmuse theater uses grotesque humor teetering on the edge of tragedy to unveil with explicit frankness and humor the masochist underbelly of legislative oppression.
