This is How We Die, London
Bailey's renowned for his surrealist tendencies and this latest work does not disappoint, combining uniquely dark humour with a stylised version of violence reminiscent of Clockwork Orange. In true unconventional style, This Is How We Die immeshes a mixture of genres, spanning road movie, spoken word, prose and emerging. Music forms a large part of Bailey's influences, and there is a musical finale to the show, as well as aspects of beat poetry, rap and a strand of thought focusing on Lenny Bruce's conception of language as a purely auditory phenomena.
If you live in a world that is convinced it is dying, nightmares become normality and internal paranoia is as scary as physical mortality. This Is How We Die promises to be as morbid as the title suggests and will unsettle and excite you in equal measures. Catch Bailey now before the subversive innovator becomes too famous for the fringes.
