TO HAVE DONE WITH THE JUDGEMENT OF GOD
by Antonin Artaud
How many pounds of flesh does it take to feed a god? Something is stirring, pulsing, preparing to hatch. In the image of the gods, humans are bred in infinite numbers to feed their ambition, while sucking dry an earth mother that can no longer support them. In the remaining wastelands, bodies crawl across the ground in a savage howl from birth to decay.
Commemorating the 70th anniversary of Antonin Artaud’s death and his invaluable contribution to modern performance practice, Fear No Colours present a new physical adaptation of his final, staggering work.
