Shows

Sorry, there are currently no available shows.

Are we animals, or are we made into animals? This question is the main theme in the body of work by film director Stanley Kubrick, known from classics such as A Clockwork Orange, The Shining and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Man as (born) beast

The shy street urchin from the Bronx, the notorious pessimist and maniacal perfectionist who became one of the most influential filmmakers, is the surprising subject of the large auditorium debut by director Suze Milius (1986). A monumental performance about the director, his aesthetics and violent world view.

Milius' performances are colourful universes about interpersonal behaviour in all its awkwardness and discomfort. Apparently everyday worlds are put under tension by her, in a stylized aesthetic and with quite some absurdism. She does not always show her work in a theatre. Sometimes you find yourself at an exhibition and five visitors turn into performers, sometimes you get the key to someone's house.

She admires Kubrick as much as she is afraid of him. Because of his aesthetics, his worldview, his almost obsessive interest in violence as an inalienable part of man.

Not only writing is deleting. The same applies to the theatre: kill off your darlings. Many brilliant scenes never made it as far as the stage. Because they did not fit in with the directorial concept or simply because time had to be won. But they are not forgotten.
