Pentangle Arts is proud to welcome the Voloz Collective to Woodstock and to host their critically acclaimed play: The Man Who Thought He Knew Too Much

Wes Anderson meets Hitchcock meets Spaghetti Western in this multi award-winning, intercontinental, inter-genre, cinematic caper of accusations, accidents and accents. Roger, a Frenchman in 1960’s New York, has followed the same predictable routine for years, until a minor delay saves him from an explosion. Throwing his ordered world into chaos, Roger chases his would-be assassins around the globe. Raucously funny and endlessly inventive, this Lecoq-trained theatre company delights and stuns with live, original music and virtuosic acrobatics in this fast-paced whodunnit. Winner of the Carol Tambour Incentive Award, The Les Enfants Terribles and Greenwich Partnership Award, and Playbill’s “Pick of the Fringe” The Man Who Thought He Knew Too Much is fast-paced, immediate and visceral, igniting the imagination with a whirlwind of images and sounds. Following two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a European tour, and an Off-West End run, Voloz Collective brings their smash hit to Pentangle for one night only!

Performance will be Saturday, August 3rd at the Town Hall Theater

Tickets on sale now! $20 in Advance or by Donation at the Door.

About The Company: Voloz Collective consists of Olivia Zerphy (native of Hartland, VT), Sam Rayner, Paul Lofferon, and Emily Wheatman. Hailing from three different countries and brought together by two years of study at L’École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq, Voloz is passionate about making theatre that is fast paced, immediate, and visceral. Rather than engaging audiences’ rational brains, we ignite audiences’ imaginations with a whirlwind of images and sounds, to tell stories that can be understood emotionally before they are understood intellectually.

Voloz’s work doesn’t rely on intricate sets, sound, and lighting to tell a story, but instead utilises the body, voice, and object theatre to spark the imaginations of theatre aficionados and first-time theatre-goers alike. They have a uniquely non-hierarchical structure; all four members work collaboratively to write, direct, act, produce, and design our shows.
