Enough Already / Lâchez Tout by Francois Sarhan

We would be delighted if you were to be able to join us for the première of our next major production, Enough Already / Lâchez Tout by Francois Sarhan (http://www.fsarhan.com/) at 7:30pm on Thursday 7th November at Tramway, Glasgow, and afterwards for drinks.

Enough Already is centred around two characters — Professor Glaçon, author of an imaginary encyclopaedia full of wonderful, absurd, funny and uncreatable things — and Bobok, a fanatical, naive man who wanders around with the same encyclopaedia under his arm. Bobok desperately wants the wonderful things in Professor Glaçon’s book to be true, against all the evidence that they can’t be — and he is prepared to go to almost any lengths to make them happen. We follow Bobok’s journey as it begins on stage, and then becomes a silent film with live music and live sound effects. On-stage sound artists provide the accompanying slamming doors, footsteps and lorries passing by, and the musicians of Red Note Ensemble accompany Bobok by singing and narrating live at the same time as playing their instruments. More than a story, Enough Already is an all-embracing theatrical, musical and filmic experience. Come and let yourself be carried along in Bobok’s absurd, upside-down and hugely entertaining world!

This run of Enough Already takes place prior to Red Note’s 3-date residency at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2013, at which Enough Already will be performed, together with the World Première of David Fennessy‘s Hauptstimme, the European Premiere of James Dillon‘s New York Triptych, and Inconsistent Whisper by Torsten Lauschmann, which was premièred at the Counterflows festival in Glasgow in April 2012.

Enough Already is a co-production between LOD Music Theatre (Ghent), Red Note Ensemble and Hellerau Europäisches Zentrum der Künste.

We do hope you are able to join us!

With all best wishes
