Autocannibal

Date: 18 Nov 2020

Addiction, corruption, over-consumption.

At best it seems our species has an irresistible need to self-harm.

At worst, we seem bent on wiping ourselves out. Provocateur Mitch Jones (aka Captain Ruin) casts an eye to our dystopian future in AutoCannibal, a visceral blend of clowning and performance art that takes us into a world in which only one human survives. There are no natural resources left. There’s no food, no water, no other living creatures.

What else can he do but eat himself?

Thrilling, darkly funny and confronting, AutoCannibal marks a powerful evolution in Jones’s creative practice, one based on years of experience in fetish clubs, avant-garde performance, sideshows and circus big tops.

AutoCannibal may be hard to watch. But you won’t want to look away.
