A woman sits on a bus and talks to the strangers around her. Or is she at home talking to herself? Or is she in a theatre talking to us? Has she been through an ordeal, or is it a fantasy? Is she traumatised, or is she just messing with us?
Duncan Graham’s Cut is a theatrical riddle which travels the precarious line between fantasy and reality, thought and action.
Graham and director Sarah John are long time collaborators who have developed a series of bold new works. Cut is their next theatrical investigation, created over a number of years and finally brought to life by the fearless Anita Hegh.
Possible confession, possible fantasy. Is she being stalked by a strange man? Or is she playing a cruel game with us? You decide.
