The Rules of Inflation

  • Theatre N16 77 Bedford Hill London, SW12 9HA United Kingdom (map)

MAR 20 - MAR 24

Sunday – Thursday, 8.30pm (3pm matinee, Wednesday 23rd), 60 mins



Born from the idea of creating a political piece of art by exploring the most basic rules and questioning the pathological patterns of our society, The Rules of Inflation is an immersive piece of performance art theatre that aims to make even the most comfortable uncomfortable. Coming to Theatre N16 in March, join the party and find the connection between a right wing political leader, your teacher, a bully and a hybrid drag queen clown. For there is plenty.

We live in a world of power, rules and leaders. But really, it’s all just one big game. Do you want to come and play? If so, welcome to your childhood dream: a world full of colours, celebrations, a party, games and… rules? And you know the rules. You would never dare to break them, would you? Play the game, balloons and stakes are high and there is no way out. We take you on a journey where nothing is the way it seems.
Come to our party and meet the other guests: Green, institutionalised and obedient; Pink, curious, competitive and outcast; Yellow, playful and naïve; and Blue, abused, objectified and wise. And, of course, our game controller. 

Balloons Theatre are a devised theatre performance collective, including Joshua Webb, Bryony Cole, Emily Sitch, Bj McNeill and Nastazja Somers. McNeill and Somers also run theatre company No Offence Theatre, which brought 5 star hit Torn Apart (Dissolution) to Theatre N16 in 2015. The collective create work that centres around socio-political issues.
