A CEO is crying in front of a mirror. A severed nose is lying on the floor. There are inspirational quotes plastered everywhere – WE CAN ALL BE HEROES –just make sure you don’t stop producing.

Disparate narratives collide around the missing appendage; a psychotic, hallucinatory journey as people start falling to pieces. The Nose is an attempt to locate the systems that exploit our bodies.

The Bloomshed creates new things by cannibalizing the old - The Nose is the company’s latest attempt to consume a classic, written by an author who starved himself to death. This is agit-prop political theatre raised from the dead and zombified. Like everything else, The Nose is a rotting corpse, animated, moaning and stumbling around for your pleasure.

WINNER: Festival Director’s Award at the Sydney Fringe Festival, 2017.

“James Jackson is Kafkaesque without any of the boringness of Kafka” – Sometimes Melbourne

“Energetic, hilarious and uncomfortable. A headbutt to the bridge of the audience’s nose, where the pain is offset by the ridiculous squirting of blood.” — Keith Gow Review
