Sep 5: William S. Burrough’s NAKED LUNCH Delta Force Improv
DELTA FORCE IMPROV presents William S. Burroughs’ “NAKED LUNCH”
Naked Lunch, a novel by the late William S. Burroughs, continues to generate controversy and debate sixty years after its initial publication in Paris by Olympia Press. It comprises a series of ‘routines’, often utilising a method called ‘cut-up/fold-in, where an original text is divided into several pieces and arranged in a different order, in effect creating a new text. Delta Force will use a similar method to create and re-create scenes, guided by Burroughs’ own words and audience suggestions.
The title, suggested by Jack Kerouac, means exactly what the words say: “Naked Lunch, a frozen moment when everyone sees what’s on the end of every fork.”
Sept. 5th marks the anniversary of the publication of Kerouac’s seminal work “On the Road” in 1955.
Please come for this very special one-time-only performance!
