If Destroyed Still True by Sedated by a Brick (UK)

Sedated By A Brick present a pathological performance.

Ten seconds of blood to the brain.

A silent figure manipulates two lifeless bodies, trying to revive them; forcing breath into their lungs, dressing and undressing them, pressing cups of tea to their unresponsive lips.

As the bodies are resuscitated, the knot of his reality unravels and they begin to exert their control over the quiet man and his world.

Sedated by a Brick are a Bristol-based performance company, producing high quality “quirk” since 2009. Seeing common causes and routes into performance and live art, they combine strong imagery and a mordant strain of humour to explore interrelations between often impossible characters and situations.
