Rick Said So
a physical theatre performance
by Frank Wo/Men Collective
Rick Said So is an eerie absurdist 75 minutes of physical theatre. Through cycles of dexterous movement, surreal images, candidly intimate monologues, and original live music, Rick Said So follows themes of what compels us as humans, ultimately essaying the absurdity of existence.

November 2018—Austin, TX— Frank Wo/Men Collective presents its third evening-length physical theatre project, Rick Said So, November 2-4 at 8pm at ASoF’s warehouse space at 2200 Tillery.
In Rick Said So, “Rick” (who/whatever Rick is) becomes a metaphor for a multitude—internal impulses and external forces that drive decision-making toward an eventual and yet undefined endpoint. At times suspenseful and at times nutty, Rick Said So highlights the exemplary and the mundane through physicality and text, venturing into human cognition with pleasantly shocking doses of perspective.
Preceding each performance will be food-nibbles, drink-dribbles, and mingling, followed by an after-party including artistic work from other mix-discipline artists throughout Austin, Texas.
Frank Wo/Men Collective is fiscally sponsored by Salvage Vanguard Theater. This project is supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
