Hi, thanks for coming. Now tell us, which one of us was your favourite? No really, let’s take a vote.
Sydney’s acclaimed performance trio, post, is on a mission to settle an ongoing debate – which one of them actually is the best?
They’ve devised a system, but the criteria keep changing. There are Dolly quizzes, enneagram tests, underwear comparisons, hand-eye coordination assessments, voting, debates and pie charts.
A contest of identity with no end point, no rules and no real meaning, Who’s the Best? Is performance as rivalry, life as competition. Here, everything is fair game: pulling focus, swapping roles, cutting space, victorious lap dances. It’s about the dizzying highs of winning and the harrowing lows of not winning, when the only thing left to do is film yourself crying in the bathroom and wait for it all to blow over
