[Shadow (Eurydice speaks)]

by Elfriede Jelinek

director Katie Mitchell

with 
Jule Böwe, Cathlen Gawlich, Renato Schuch, Maik Solbach

from 19 to 28 January 2018
From Wednesday to Friday at 8:30pm
On Tuesday at 7:30pm, on Saturday at 3,30 pm and 8:30pm, on Sunday at 3:30pm

Eurydice is leaving death for life. Orpheus, the celebrated singer, leads her through tunnels, along corridors, up lifts and drives her along endless blank underground roads. During the journey, she remembers how during her lifetime as a writer she was constantly overshadowed by Orpheus in a society that refused to grant her an independent place of her own. The closer she gets to the end of the journey the more she realises how much she prefers her shadowy non-existence in the underworld to the externally controlled existence in the body of a woman.

In Shadow (Eurydice Speaks) Elfriede Jelinek continues her exploration of female myths from a feminist perspective. For the first time British director Katie Mitchell is staging a text by the Nobel Prize in Literature-winning Austrian writer. In her production with live video on the stage, Mitchell is collaborating with an ensemble of actors, a cinematog- rapher and sound artists to create images and aural landscape for Eurydice’s involuntary journey out of the realm of shadows and back into patriarchal civilisation.
