Marie Ségolène - The Eye Of The Rib

  • Matthews Yard: Theatre 1 Matthews Yard Croydon, England, CR0 1FF United Kingdom (map)

The EYE OF THE RIB is a multidisciplinary performance, that involves projection, sound, tape recording, live reading and ritualistic gestures. 

The performer butchers a lamb with a variety of surgical tools, while reading a text in dialogue with a pre-recorded tape. 

The writings deal with themes of trauma, desire and violence, through a combination of personal narratives, historical facts and academic quotes. The result is a fragmented dialogue, that accompanies the viewers through states of confusion, repulsion and attraction.
