Residency – theatre
Τhe Ice Cream Van
Blood Red Roses
Blood Red Roses invites the audience into an ordinary night of a not-so
ordinary couple. Dinner is served, red wine fills their glass and every mouthful, every movement, every gesture changes subject – from the weather to whether or not to chop your head off. How ordinary can an ordinary night be when you got the whole world in your hands?
This residency is a research into the private lives of famous dictators – their growing up, their partners and sexual lives, their dressing-up styles and favorite drinks, what makes them human, what makes them monster, what makes them appealing to us, what makes us them.
It will be created through the techniques of devising, bouffons and clowning. This is a performance inspired by the current return of extremities in politics and lifestyle. Instead of looking into the rhetoric and facade which exists in front of crowds however, this is an exploration of what happens behind closed doors, within an atmosphere of safety and intimacy. Cause who’s not curious with what these bastards are up to in their homes?
