Unreal City: A Fragmented Souls Production
Friday, February 6, 2015 saw the world premier of Unreal City, a new theatrical work in English, conceived and directed by John Crutchfield, and created in collaboration with an ensemble of students in the Institute for English Philology at the Free University of Berlin. The show played to a packed house at Tatwerk, an off-theatre performance space in the Kreuzberg quarter of Berlin, Germany.
Combining drama, choreography, and live soundscapes, the play examines life in the metropolis, with themes ranging from euphoria to loneliness, from boredom to absurdity, and from glimpses of strange beauty to moments of fear, madness and alienation. In its variety of theatrical styles and approaches, the work reflects the truly collaborative method of artistic creation which lay at the heart of the project.
