Emanuelle Enchanted Text

Back to shop

Emanuelle Enchanted, on a crude wooden stage five performers use a semi-translucent curtain to reveal the fragmentary traces of a single apocalyptic night. Read narratively, the piece shows a night of crisis, which is perhaps both personal and global.

The invoked ‘scenes’ include a chaotic TV newsroom, a domestic space in which the walls themselves are always in motion, and a panoramic glimpse of many characters presented via cardboard signs. These fragments become texts with which the performers struggle, attempting (not always successfully) to overcome the hardships of theatrical representation, language and memory.
