Info

 

Picking up from her previous works, in What? the actress and choreographer Anna Mendelssohn follows the traces of the political in the private and of the private in the political. What? is a play on language and its perils. Between sweet promises and strategic rhetoric, a woman and a man fall ever deeper into the politics of their private dispute. With calculation and precision the rules of the game of dialogic conflict are flung through one another in rapid alternations between ideological dogmas and everyday banalities. The audience finds itself in the midst of an artful dispute in which the two opponents struggle through the thicket of their apparent contradictions: trust vs. risk, freedom vs. control, feminism vs. patriarchy. A staged dialogue, a wrestling match of standpoints that sabotage one another, a passionate conflict, a fathomless and humorously ritualised battlefield.
