Venue: The Black-E
Dates: 09/07/2016
Times: 18:00 - 19:30


Part of the Chinatown episode, Relational Stalinism: the Musical is an assemblage that uses many different registers of performance simultaneously. It mixes taiko micro-dance, exhausting feats of reading, experimental physical comedy, melodramatic operatic interlude, call-centre language-torture games, and satire of the Immaterial Turn.

Originally commissioned by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam, together with A.P.E. (Art Projects Era).
