THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 Suitable for all ages, parental guidance recommended for the very young. Running Time: 80 mins A hilarious cartoon journey through the shifting borderlands between sense and nonsense. At the studios of Splash, Line & Scuro, Cutting Edge Conceptualists, things haven’t been looking too hot of late. Splash is paralyzed by indecision and all the bright young Turks are queuing up, eager to knock him off his perch. Then out of the blue comes a salivatingly mysterious million pound commission. With Forkbeard’s famed mix of visual trickery, film and outlandish story-lines, The Colour of Nonsense is an exuberant satire on an art and theatre world always in search of the ‘New’. As mutinous drawings throw the studios into animated confusion, only Edward Lear’s “Dong with a Luminous Nose” seems able to shed any light into the chiaroscuro of chaos. “80 generous minutes of madly inventive, thoughtful fun” **** The Guardian.
