Performance | Behave Yourself

Behave Yourself was a collaborative performance in response to SOFT ROC by Tom et Arthur.

What if you were a bacteria cell? How would you react? How would you behave? How would you survive? Find out in an interactive and experimental performance featuring improvising drummer Simon Roth, microbiologist Marta Ciechońska, and dancers Elisa Vassena and Kasia Witek.

About Simon Roth
Simon Roth grew up playing music in a house by a forest between the M25 and the Metropolitan line. He was given a Mickey Mouse drum kit to play, while his brothers had shiny and ornate things like a saxophone and Spanish guitar. He’s always looked back since.
