The Writer

Video Design – Theater
British writer Ella Hickson’s experimental play about contemporary gender relations and their impact on artistic creation caused a sensation when it premiered in London in 2018.

At the heart of the piece is the character of THE WRITER, a woman sho sets out to create groundbreaking stage work free from patriarchal influence. Her struggles with the power dynamic of personal relationships also come under scrutiny.
Meanwhile the audience is co-opted to become spectators for some of her writing as scences from her work are staged within the play. This postmodern playfulness extends to introduccing the character of the Director which in turn allows the structures of modern theater making to be exposed and critiqued.

In this production of the Théâtre de la Ville Luxmbourg, the narrative on stage is deconsrtucted and extended by the use of abstract, stage filling video and a Butho inspired performance.
