In preparation for their annual ball, Lord Gredus, has decided to offer some of the potential guests the chance to have a taste of the high life, a sneak peak of power, class and indulgence. His faithful staff however have other ideas in mind! So in a secret location, guests are invited to attend the Gredus Aperitif.
Together they meet Lord Gredus and are assigned their own waiter. With the help of headphones, they are taught the etiquette, manners and best practice of the waiting staff, all through the medium of movement.
A unique take on a silent disco; the piece will see audiences inducted into the world of the greatest servants on earth and invited into their secret plot to overthrow their master. With an explosive finale, as Lord Gredus himself is sacrificed, the piece explores the dark side of gluttony and consumerism with a gory finish.
