PITY Lördag 21 augusti – Teater Trixter
A meditation upon the price of freedom in the face of idolising love we follow a woman’s treacherous journey towards an attempt at becoming an autonomous individual freed from the shackles of disillusionment. PITY: Part 4 is the fourth part of Iraqi Bodies’ pentalogy PITY in which Shakespeare’s play Othello is re-devised in a contemporary setting. In the fourth chapter we meet the love-sick Desdemona.
The previous parts have premiered and performed since 2018 at venues such as Atalante, Göteborgs Stadsteater, GBG Mime Fest, Teater Trixter and toured festivals in the Middle East.
With support from The Swedish Arts Council and Gothenburg Arts and Cultural Affairs Committee. Developed in residency at Danscentrum Väst.
Created and performed by Anmar Taha and Josephine Gray.
