A profound, stylistically and visually arresting performance rooted in physical and black comedy.
Three paranoid comrades work, play and ritualize as their thrilled muttering drives their joy while a pile of shiny red noses emerge from beneath a rusty bucket.
Perceived as an underground clown cult, The Long Pigs takes its title from the Melanesian Pidgin phrase for “human flesh”, where three black nose clowns have been scalping clown noses and slicing the very symbol of innocence off their once red nose cousins.
