THE KING OF
The King of Taking
A royal physical comedy so new it's not finished.
The King of Taking at BATS is a development season for a new work by Kallo Collective and Thom Monckton.
Allergic to normal flooring, a childish and petulant King can only walk on red carpet, and can't move without an effective fanfare. His executions are unsustainably frequent as he callously barrels towards his own destruction.
