Unexploded Ordnances (UXO) by Split Britches is a new exploration of ageing, anxiety and ‘doomsday’ created through conversation and collaboration with an array of elders and artists. Developed between the UK and US, Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw have created a unique production, combining darkly playful Dr Strangelove-inspired performance with a daring new protocol for public discussion – the Situation Room.
Split Britches was founded 34 years ago by Peggy Shaw, Lois Weaver, and Deb Margolin in New York City. Since 1980 they have transformed the landscape of queer theatre with their vaudevillian satirical gender-bending performance.
UNEXPLODED ORDNANCES (UXO) was created and developed from 2016-2018 through a series of residencies with elders and artists in London, New York, Los Angeles and beyond.
Produced & Developed by In Company Collective with support from Arts Council England, the Barbican, Doris Duke Foundation, Richmond University (Virginia) & Queen Mary University of London.
THE PHILIP AND JANICE LEVIN FOUNDATION provides support for The Public’s access and engagement programming.
