If you 'Google' the term 'bricolage', you would get hundreds of results starting with bricolage (in art or literature) construction or creation from a diverse range of available things.

Having learnt the meaning of the word, are you any closer to understanding what the new show at The Butterfly Club is about? No, I do not think so.

As Broadwayworld article puts it: written, directed and performed by Mark J Wilson (Welcome to Woop Woop, Dead Letter Office) and developed in conjunction with Emilie Collier (RN, La Mama) & Angus Cameron (MTC, Malthouse) Homage to Bricolage is a new production that questions concepts of 'self' and 'identity' in online worlds.

Being an average consumer of traditional theatre, I did not know what expect from Bricolage. However, having seen the show, having had a chance to sleep on all the sights, sounds and thoughts that the show brought up and out, I can say that it is 'bricolage'. It hides meaning behind jokes and songs. It covers fears and pain with the poetry of Shakespeare and KFC orders. It makes us face our disconnection in our super-connected world.
