Presentation

  • A black cube and ten screens for an immersive experience. Katie Mitchell's video installation explores 20th-century theatre through an almost mythical, if not archaic, scene: the madness of Ophelia. When a single scene from Hamlet interprets the worlds of Konstantin Stanislavski, Antonin Artaud, Bertolt Brecht, Jerzy Grotowski, and Peter Brook...

     

    Katie Mitchell
    After studying literature, British artist Katie Mitchell began her career as an assistant in theatres, including the Royal Shakespeare Company. That's where she directed, upon returning in 1996 from a cycle of residences in Eastern European (and particularly Polish) theatres, Euripides's The Phoenician Women, which was enthusiastically received. Her company, Classics on a shoestring, then started creating ever more successful and acclaimed shows, reimagining classics from Greece, Britain, Scandinavia, and Russia and giving them new life through her sense of rhythm and use of music, dance, and video in her directions. Working with the most prestigious British and German theatres, Katie Mitchell has also led projects for television or the opera, and experimented with innovative forms, adapting novels for the theatre and collaborating with her contemporaries such as the writer Martin Crimp or the scientist Stephen Emmott, with whom she created Ten Billion in 2012. She first appeared in the line-up of the Festival d'Avignon in 2011 with Christine, based on August Strindberg's Miss Julie, then in 2012 with Ten Billion and Die Ringe des Saturn, and in 2013 with Journey through the Night, an adaptation of Friederike Mayröcker.
