This spring sees the London premieres of the final two works that make up the Operation Infinity series that Simon Vincenzi started working on in 2008. Continuing to explore themes of possession, a strand that links all four works in the series, both Luxuriant and King Real Against the Guidelines also involve overlapping casts.
In Luxuriant, the fictional band of players Troupe Mabuse, a theatre company under the control of psychic shape-shifter and master of disguise Dr. Mabuse, make a desperate and absurd attempt to reconstruct the classical musical film Gold Diggers, in the recently refurbished People’s Palace theatre.
Luxuriant is part of Peopling the Palace Festival which takes place between 17-24 February. A festival of performance, conversation and entertainment it will include the performance platform ReFresh including performances by emerging artists alongside special commissions in which younger and older artists create new works together.
