I have just returned from Prague, Czech Republic, where I had the thrill to collaborate and perform in a new play by Than Hussein Clark. It was part of a presentation of new works: ‘Debts-The Erotic Review Sinai’ that the London and Hamburg based artist produced over the last two months during the artists production residency in the frame of A.I.R. FUTURA.
We rehearsed in an old auto factory that is now Karlin Studios, Krizikova. Our performance took place in the fabulous Studio Hrdinu, in The National Gallery.
Over the seven week rehearsal period, we developed a physical and vocal system of language which complimented the themes of the work. It was the most rigorous and glorious experience.
‘As Part of his exhibition Debts (Erotic Review Sinai) at Futura Contemporary Art Centre Prague, Than Hussein Clark will also premier a new three act dramatic work at Studio Hrdinů on October 15th at 7pm. Drawing on the Marionette plays of Maurice Maetlink, the chamber plays of August Strindberg, and the History of the Opera of the Fifth of May, Clark’s newest theatrical production tells the story of an incestuous Governess and her charge, whose grand tour of Egypt must be tragically cut short. They return home to he premier of an opera, after which only one will return to the Nile.
