Daniel Bye presents

How To Occupy An Oil Rig


There are all sorts of lessons to be learned in life.


How to blend in on a march.

How to crash a boardroom meeting.

How to avoid becoming romantically attached to an undercover police officer.


That sort of thing.


In this playful and provocative show about protest, how-to demonstration and storytelling show you how to do all of this and more. Funny, surprising, and not a little sad, How To Occupy An Oil Rig is for everyone who ever wanted to change anything. And that’s everyone.


You get to play with plasticine, too.
