What Does Stuff Do?

  • The Theatre Old Fire Station 40 George Street OX1 2AQ (map)

Juggler, water-bender, and part time deep thinker Robin Boon Dale presents the full-length edition of his award-winning show.

What Does Stuff Do? is a TED Talk-esque performance about the relationships between people and things, which pivots between absurdity and profundity.

Robin guides you through his mind and body of research, utilising insights from his circus training alongside ideas borrowed from object oriented philosophy, to offer new ways of thinking about the physical world.

Featuring pouring, performance ping pong, and a motivational speech delivered by a man in swimming trunks, this eccentric renegade philosophy lecture flourishes into an astounding circo-oddyssey.

Ages 8+. £10. In the Old Fire Station Theatre.

“What Does Stuff Do? is the perfect mixture of serious provocation in a form that is massive fun. It has something for audiences ranging from fellow jugglers to circus ingénues, from those seeking philosophical tangles to those looking for a great night out. Whatever the stuff in this show does – it is very, very good.” - Exeunt

“Not only is Dale a talented juggler, but a clever theatre-maker too.” - The Circus Diaries

“This piece is a fine art and will keep a smile on your face from start to finish” - The Reviews Hub

“A brilliantly eloquent, charming and stylish exploration of body, object, rhythm and pace” - Bristol 24/7
