Part of FLARE15, the International Festival of New Theatre:
Christians Schwenk (DE) presents J.U.D.I.T.H in cooperation with Argentinian Choreographer Ayelén Cantini and cobratheater.cobra.
‘J.U.D.I.T.H.’ is ‘discourse-theatre with poetic-abstract choreographic elements’. Based on a drama by Friedrich Hebbel, things start to unravel when multiple species of dildosaur, and chickens, both fried and headless, dance through the orgasm landscape... and of course it ain’t over ‘til the opera-singing vulva sings…
A performance of heavy sweating and physical comedy - dangerous, hilarious and wonderful!
A piece by students at Hildesheim University, ‘J.U.D.I.T.H.’ has already toured widely across Germany, and won the jury award at the 100° Festival, Berlin 2015.
Marja Christians and Isabel Schwenk have been working together since 2012. They are searching for performative representations of structural violence, using strategies of comedy. They question their own position and are looking for social and political responsibility as young, white and privileged theatre makers. They challenge current norms and conventions and create new images of the (female) body.
