We May Have to Choose


'Beautifully simple, intensely clever… intimate, funny, honest.' THREEWEEKS (UK

'Brain-prodding, riveting theatre… genius.' THE AGE

I think therefore I am… often wrong.

Inspired by Tim Etchell’s’ Sight is the Sense, Emma Hall performs a poetic study of the personal soapbox and a fantastical ride through the subconscious mind in the award-winning We May Have to Choose.

“Farting breaks the ice. Ice caps are good places for Japanese butoh dancing. Dancing fills your body with happy chemicals. Chemicals are destroying the oceans. The Arctic is not a safe place to visit. The polar bears are angry with you...” 

A monologue of sorts, a list of declarations about the universe, 621 opinions delivered in 45 minutes – this stunning, intimate solo directed by Prue Clark is a funny, withering and moving piece about the fallibility of thought in our quest to solve the riddles of our world.

Emma Hall and Prue Clark are classically trained theatre artists based in Melbourne. Their work together uses contemporary performance forms to change audiences' perceptions of time and the political universe.
