A turbo-slapstick performance

ISH Dance Collective in coproduction with Jakop Ahlbom Company and DeLaMar Theater presents: Knock-Out. A rollercoaster of a performance in which the physical scenes are tumbling over each other. The performance is filled with spectacular acrobatics and visual effects. The audience is not given any time for reflection, but in stead they are sweating in their seat with an increased heart rate. This is an ode to the action movie, exclusively shown at DeLaMar Theater in Amsterdam.

Gambling addict Larry and his unhappy wife Buffy are kidnapped. His very wealthy father receives a request for ransom – if he pays, the couple will be released. While he is on his way to pay the ransom, some unwelcome guests arrive at the door. The confusion grows and everyone starts fighting with everyone else in an ultimate attempt to keep the money safe.

All physical limits are stretched in Knock-Out. People are dangling in the sky for too long, and they are squashed against a wall after which they continue to fight as if nothing has happened. And then there is also the mysterious cowboy with his guitar, who sings during all the events.

Knock-Out is a physical comedy about greed and stinginess, inspired by the Coen Brothers and Jackie Chan films.
