Grappling With Beckett

UMO explores the essential themes of Samuel Beckett’s prose 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 visceral experience of Beckett.
