Retake, Remake!

Harrogate Theatre

The Lawnmowers Theatre Ensemble present Retake, Remake!, a show where the actors take back films made about learning disabled and disabled people but without learning disabled or disabled actors. In a fun and sometimes profoundly moving way, they question this practice and replay snippets of these films through the art of lip-syncing and stylised movement.

The show however is more than an investigation into an outmoded Hollywood practice, it takes the ensemble and its audience on a wild-water-ride, discussing topics like dating, ownership, sexuality and eugenics. In a patchwork of film, music and popular culture the members of the ensemble ask for respect for people with learning disabilities. Even though, they feel, things are changing for the better, there is still a long way to go. We hope you will enjoy the ride, it’s a ‘real eye-opener’.

“Packed with bags of humour and directed by Jan-Willem Van Den Bosch with fierce, kinetic energy, Retake, Remake is slyly funny, gloriously kitschy fun”Exeunt
