THEATRE REVIEWS DESIGN

YOU ARE GOING TO DIE is the new performance work from Adam Scott-Rowley - creator of the 2017 sixteen ★★★★★ awarded and internationally touring show THIS IS NOT CULTURALLY SIGNIFICANT.

Performed entirely naked, this show is a nail-biting descent into existential anxiety as humanity stares down the proverbial toilet. A surreal meditation on annihilation that rests on the knife edge between physical theatre and performance art. Ideograms and archetypal forms offer a shared purge illuminating the darkest corners of the human psyche while revealing compassion and humour in the most unlikely of places. 

 

★★★★★ 

"Scott-Rowley’s incredible physical performance is utterly captivating, holding the audience with every pained gesture and moment of levity.” - British Theatre Guide

★★★★★ 

"The overall effect is both monstrous and magical. Magical because, here, dying is framed, not as a process of atrophy, but rather as an act of accretion or accumulation: a celebration, a natural gathering of speed and experience, a means of moving towards the end, unafraid.” - The Skinny

★★★★★ 

“YOU ARE GOING TO DIE is a physical theatre masterpiece. It is entirely absorbing, entertaining, humorous but hitting really poignant spots in every audience member.” - Get the Chance Wales

 

★★★★★

“A crowd-pleasing, brilliantly vulgar spectacle... it serves as a jubilant, much-needed, collective catharsis..” – Fringe Biscuit

★★★★★

“Takes you places you’d never dream of or dare to step into of your own volition..” – The Theatre Times

★★★★★

“Exquisitely absurd physical theatre in a cyclical rhythm, create a world of utter existential dread, which, much like death, there is no escaping.” – The Student

★★★★★

“Nobody does character work like Adam Scott-Rowley. He’s the most fascinating, defiant, mind-tingling performance artist you’ll ever see.” – Everything Theatre

★★★★ 

“Physically astonishing and vocally brilliant 60 minutes hovers between tragedy and farce, dread and hilarity.” - Lyn Gardner for The Stage

★★★★

“Scott-Rowley is a remarkably talented performer, who feels less like he’s playing these strange creatures than being possessed by them.” - The Scotsman

★★★★

“An exhortation to embrace life – in all its richness, its strangeness and, yes, its degradations – while we can..” - The Arts Desk

 

★★★★ 

“Adam Scott-Rowley’s characterisation and physicality are a wonder to behold.." – Shy Strange Manic
