A visceral blend of performance art and physical theatre that asks: ‘what will we eat when we’ve consumed it all?’

Addiction, corruption, environmental destruction. At best it seems our species has an irresistible need to self-harm. At worst, we seem bent on wiping ourselves out. Provocateur Mitch Jones (aka Captain Ruin) imagines our dystopian future in AutoCannibal, a visceral blend of clowning, performance art and physical theatre that takes us into a world in which only one human survives. There are no natural resources left. There’s no food, no water, no other living creatures.  

What else can he do but eat himself? 

Thrilling, confronting and darkly funny, _AutoCannibal _marks a powerful evolution in Jones’s creative practice, one based on years of experience performing in fetish clubs, sideshows and circus big tops. 

_AutoCannibal _may be hard to watch, but you won’t want to look away.
