3 Men in a Tub

Three Men in a Tub fol­lows the story of three men who have been trav­el­ling together for a long time. Exiled from their coun­tries due to war, drought or polit­i­cal tur­moil. After over 300 years of trav­el­ling, all three char­ac­ters — the butcher, the baker and a can­dle­stick maker — have lost their trades as other rit­u­als and habits have taken over their daily lives and their desire to find a home.

A pro­ces­sional and sta­tic street the­atre spec­ta­cle built around a beau­ti­ful ‘home­made’ mobile vehi­cle that serves as a home for three trades­men, Three Men in a Tub is phys­i­cal the­atre, some­times comedic and some­times tragic, incor­po­rat­ing sound and music.

Three Men in a Tub is both a sculp­tural instal­la­tion (as viewed while still) and a series of nar­ra­tive episodes (of vary­ing lengths) that can be linked together by the audi­ence and/or viewed in isolation.
