Latest productions include Call Cutta in a Box, a one-to-one telephone performance that takes place live from a call centre in India; Breaking News, a ‘daily news show’ with 9 protagonists, who ‘re-present’ the evening news as messengers from their own respective cultural and linguistic areas on stage and let it take effect there; 100% Berlin, a living arrangement of statistics for 100 citizens on a revolving stage; Black Tie, a play that circles the black hole of origins, the strangely eloquent and “helping” young human genetics industry of these times, and the alienation between my environment and myself.
