After some flirting with Shakespeare and the genre of comedy in the previous theatrical pieces, this short piece explores social theatre by presenting more overtly political topics.
Under a Shakespearean and Orwellian umbrella title, Brave Sick World includes four independent pieces. The first one adopts the tone and format of a “Kabaret” (a political cabaret) by giving dramatic sense to the theatrical exercise of imitating animal forms. The second piece explores the potential of dystopian narrative through a dramatic and naturalist register. Finally, the third and fourth pieces are a synthesis of artistic expressions experimented by the participants of the workshop within the dramatization of the piece’s theme.
