Abstract

The Butlers are a troupe of immaculately dressed performers who have offered their services at festivals and events both nationally and internationally since 2006. The project is designed to explore concepts of service within the performance contract, and to problematize the relationship between performer and spectator, turning the percipient into an explicit participant and instigator of the art-making. Nominated for Total Theatre Award 2012.
