🦷 A conversation about jail life and violence with Lara-Joy from markusundmarkus theather colective. 🦷
Penthesilea, Judith, Clytemnestra, Medea, Lady Macbeth. Night after night, we let ourselves be sprinkled by their acts of violence, enjoying the drama, murder, and killing. We watch true crime; we consume violence on TV, on stage, and in books. But if it gets real, we take people out of society and don´t look closer.
If Penthesilea and the others were not trapped in Reclam books, they would probably be in prison. There, the Markus & Markus theater collective tracked down the - very real - protagonists of this evening for their new play and began to write them letters. 🪡
🕸 "In previous times, we have built up pen-pal relationships with people in lifelong lockdown – in prison. Together with them, we have worked on this production, to which we cordially invite you today. We have missed you.
- Best wishes and take care, your Markus&Markus theater collective"
