Frontal Lobotomy
  • Brighton Fringe

Bold, witty, and surreal, burlesque maverick Jeu Jeu la Foille fuses original beat poetry with the tormented lullabies of Tom Waits, punctuated with scientific accounts of perhaps the biggest error of judgment in medical history - the transorbital lobotomy. Dreamlike, passionate and sometimes ridiculous, a dance through the woozy mythology, skewed narrative and embellished truths in the melancholic, irreverent world of Waits, with a unique blend of form and style. Expect gruff puppetry, beatnik burlesque, and a toy shop orchestra of musical reprobates.
