Performance Laboratory Salzburg

Nominated by National Theatre for Mitos21


An exploration of what it is to gift someone/to bring someone/ to impress upon someone/ to force upon someone your knowledge/ your culture/your way of thinking/your point of view/your artistic process. 

An exploration of British Empire- and Europe's- violent history.

'Violence is man recreating himself'  Frantz Fanon


Alongside that, an exploration of violence and cruelty in the pursuit of art-making.

“I wanted Maria to feel, not to act,” Bertolucci said. Bertolucci argued that it was necessary to humiliate Schneider in order to make his film.  Anna North, Vox


Mitos21 is a theatre network in which several of Europe's most influential producing theatres have joined together to promote exchange between European theatremakers across political and linguistic borders
