Event Description:
“Ever tried, ever failed. No Matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail Better.” – Samuel Beckett UMO Ensemble, a physical theatre company from Seattle, is proud to present FAIL BETTER: BECKETT MOVES UMO, an exploration of the essential themes of Samuel Beckett’s work using a giant teeter- totter, ropes, and pulleys. Five archetypal Beckett characters tackle love, life, death, and going- on in typical Beckett fashion: with humor, metaphor, stillness, and gross indecency - creating a living, visceral experience. The work of Samuel Beckett has fascinated UMO for many years. Beckett grapples with existential questions of life, love, action, and inaction - and Beckett’s writings speak directly to physical enterprise: walking, balancing, eating, hanging, and spinning. UMO takes these impulses, these questions and conundrums, and uses them to launch a love story – into the air itself. “A brilliantly performed and orchestrated show… an artistic postcard from the edge of reality well worth going to see, hear, feel and experience.” ~ L. Steven Sieden, Huffington Post “UMO Ensemble’s remarkable tribute to [Beckett’s] genius, FAIL BETTER is a mesmerizing production,... a visual delight and an intellectual teaser.” ~ The Seattle Times
