The History of the World (Based on Banalities)

Kopergietery and Richard Jordan Productions in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth, Summerhall and Big in Belgium

Philip, a young man with a predilection for magic and illusion, has moved back home to be with his mother, a brilliant scientist, who is dying of Alzheimer’s. They have never been close. She clings to science and reason; he clings to magic, fantasy, and illusions. For long as Philip can remember his mother has been searching for the Higgs boson particle, the particle that keeps the world together; Philip has been searching for something more, something that might keep them together. Underscored with live music performed by Belgian rock star Geoffrey Burton — a hooded and mysterious figure who haunts the stage— celebrated Belgian performer Titus De Voogdt weaves magic and illusions into this award-winning show about grief (Fringe First 2015). The History of the World (Based on Banalities) is a story about dealing with loss and coming to terms with the lost and beautiful moments of our lives; the small and seemingly meaningless banalities that tie us together.
