Dark Laugh Theatre

Dark Laugh is a creative collection of artists, actors, designers and theatre makers that was formed in 2003. The collective boasts the talents of Mongi Mthombeni, Taryn Bennett, Jaques Da Silva, Alison Green and Daniel Buckland who have been constantly building a body of high quality theatre work since the company’s inception. Their works include the award winning The Butcher Brothers, Dr Collingers Funeral Service, Kaput, and The God Complex  among others.

Their aims and objectives revolve around a stylistic unity and a commitment not only to visual theatre, but to using physical theatre to contrast and intertwine the comic and the tragic, provoking spectators to laugh at the profoundly sad and to weep at the transcendent hilarity of reality.
