Filled with outlandish surprises, this seminar is soon revealed to be something much more sinister. Sales Pitch interrogates the sincerity of corporations, the absurdities of the information age and the extremities of capitalism. An overwhelming, no-holds-barred experience, presented as an investment seminar, this dark satire sets to intrigue, amuse and disturb audiences in equal measure.
Spare The Rod aim to create intense, semi-immersive experiences. Their shows are comedies, with a healthy dose of confrontation and uneasiness. Focusing on ideas that are heavily audience-driven, they hope to give people the feeling that anything could happen at any moment.
