A sort of Opera
Pass the Spoon
Pass the Spoon is a collaboration between off-beat visual artist David Shrigley, award-winning composer David Fennessy and Director Nicholas Bone. It is described by its creators as a ‘sort of opera’.
The action focuses on a meal cooked for larger-than-life character, Mr Granules, during a daytime TV cookery show, with predictably disastrous consequences.
Featuring some strong language, surreal imagery and a story-line you’d expect from Shrigley, it’s almost a pantomime, but with its adult humour it’s certainly not of the cuddly Christmas variety.
This performance took place at The Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s Southbank Centre in May 2012 and was streamed live on The Space.
