“Beans, beans good for the heart, the more you eat the more you…”
Adam Scott-Rowley packs an almighty punch with his one man show This is Not Culturally Significant. Twelve characters struggling with the every day, are pieced together in this brutal, beautiful, brilliant performance.
Scott-Rowley often moves between his characters as if he’s going through an X-Men-esque transformation. The transition can look incredibly painful but he also moves seamlessly between storylines. His range of personalities and the little connections that bind them prove what a clever piece of theatre This is Not Culturally Significant is. Each of Scott-Rowley’s creations feel entirely developed even if they’re only on stage for a few minutes, and he has perfected the unique grotesque and outrageous physicality and facial expressions that define each of them.
