FOLLOWING its hugely successful production of The Storeroom back in 2009, international award- winning physical theatre company The Kosh are on the road again with a delicious new show entitled Café Chaos.

Comic confusion spills from the kitchen, waiters and diners collide, lovers meet, identities are traded, secrets uncovered, denial and betrayal tear friendships apart; dangerous comedy and a tragic night out are just some of the specials on the menu at Café Chaos.

Conceived and directed by Michael Merwitzer and Siân Williams, who formed the company in 1982, designed by Jenny Carey, choreographed by Siân Williams, with music by Alastair Gavin and a scenario by Roger Farrell, the multi-talented cast of Café Chaos conjure a night of physical and verbal extravagance.

The Kosh have won numerous awards including Manchester Evening News Dance Theatre Award, New York Festivals Film Award and the Cairo Experimental Theatre Award.

Creating innovative productions of the highest artistic standards, The Kosh aim to make the arts accessible to wide ranging audiences, and, through the arts, provide life enhancing experiences and educational opportunities.

Artsreach spokeswoman Kerry Bartlett said: “This new dynamic dish from The Kosh blends physical comedy, theatre, dance and music with a great story.

“It takes a close look at prejudice and denial in a humorous, down to earth way.

“Here we have another classic Kosh production; funny, superbly skilful, gloriously theatrical and guaranteed to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. Be sure to see it in Dorset this spring.”

There are two performances of Café Chaos next week and you can see them at Gillingham School on March 7 (call 01747 833844) and Powerstock Hut the following night (call 01308 485264). Both performances start at 8pm.
