Shall We Take This Outside is a spoken word theatre piece from writer and performer Adam Kammerling
Violence solves nothing.
(Except in films, TV, books, comics, games and pretty much every corner of culture where heroes exist.)
Shall We Take This Outside is Adam’s exploration of his own violence, where it found him, why he embraced it, and how it affects him today. As Adam moves through his memories, we discover the myriad ways in which violence bleeds into everyday real life, from hierarchies in the classroom, pub and street, to flippant rejections of any social movement deemed a threat to the status quo.
Animated acrobatic dancers; Si Rawlinson and Nina Cavaciuti give physical form to the stories, manipulating Adam and the space, and bringing a visual impact that spoken word simply cannot do alone. The soundtrack is equal parts classic pomp and heroism, and electronic, grime-inspired instrumentals, a reference to both the content of the show, and to Adam’s background as an MC.
