Igor travels East looking for his Mama and is tormented by fragments of the past. Vera played the game and kept the only pair of shoes they had, but Vera is dead.
Conspiracy of Orphans explores the death of a loved one through the lens of mime, physical comedy, elements of magic and the monstrous games of children. Transposed from verbatim stories of war, Created a Monster bring their award winning approach to keep the audience "midpoint between laughter, discomfort and horror" (5* THE STAGE).
Conspiracy of Orphans tells a dark story of Europe's unspeakable past, transposing Svetlana Alexeivic's Last Witnesses, testimonies of war seen through the prism of children's perspectives. The events they experience and the games they play become fused in Created a Monster's typically hellish exploration of the surreal, the comic and human horror through corporeal and gestural mime, bouffon, clown and signboards.
