Ben Target makes things. They are always exquisite and awful, like a gold tractor or an unbreakable moral code. Subjects he explores include self-care, cardboard mechanics and the bucolic.
His show - Imagine There's No Ben Target (It's Easy If You Try) - is a lushious gathering of genial prop comedy, bestial theatre sports and well chosen ink pens. It hints at a future that thwarts autopsychological betrayal through gently coercive physical mastery. NB Wear sensible shoes.
“This highly physical performer is a true original and a legend in the making” – The Guardian
