Who’s the Best?

In Who’s the Best? acclaimed collective post are on a mission to settle an ongoing debate. A contest of identity with no end point, no rules and no real meaning: it’s about winning.

Who’s the Best? charts the long and arduous process of post determining - once and for all - the answer to the question no-one wanted to ask out loud: which of them is definitively, empirically, the best.

They’ve undergone months of gruelling magazine quizzes, enneagram tests, underwear comparisons, hand-eye coordination assessments, IQ analysis, debates and test audience surveys. Now, they present their results.

Delivering hilariously mind-bending arguments at a breakneck speed, the performers battle it out on stage, sidetracked by the minutia of category labels and criteria. Also threatening to overtake the competition is the stage itself - as set, lighting and sound carry on their own show, regardless of the competitors’ intentions.

Part stand up comedy, part presentation, and part contemporary performance, Who’s the Best? is a stark portrait of the way competition functions in our society – but with amazing dance breaks.
