Artaud in China

Artaud: un portrait en décomposition played to nearly sold-out houses as part of the Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre’s ACT International Theatre Festival We were amazed and encouraged by the warm response from the Chinese audience. Our opening show was followed by a lively talk-back that transformed into a discussion about Artaud’s Theatre Of Cruelty, the nature of catharsis and the role of theatre in our lives as a purging agent for negative forces…it was very humbling and stimulating to talk to people who we weren’t sure would have any connection with Artaud and to hear how the show affected them. Many huge, warm thanks to the SDAC for inviting us and to Michele Smith, Coleen MacPherson, Andre Du Toit & Kim Purtell for making it happen. And special thanks to Dean Gilmour for being a huge supporter and inspiration. Stay tuned for more touring news about Artaud as we are hoping to go on the road in June…
