PRAXIS MAKES PERFECT in Berlin
at the Foreign Affairs festival in Berlin, Germany
National Theatre Wales’ hit immersive gig, created with Gruff Rhys & Boom Bip of Neon Neon and performed in venues and festivals across the UK in the summer of 2013, will be performed at one of Europe’s most prestigious arts festivals - Foreign Affairs - in July.
Enter the unique world of Praxis Makes Perfect! Become part of an immersive gig imagining the life of Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, the millionaire Italian communist at the heart of many of the most extraordinary events of the twentieth century.
Smuggle a manuscript out of Russia, be tortured by the CIA, play basketball with Fidel Castro! With Feltrinelli anything is possible.
Conceived and performed by Gruff Rhys & Boom Bip of Neon Neon, with playwright Tim Price and director Wils Wilson, this production will be performed at the Berghain nightclub in Berlin.
Foreign Affairs is a new international festival of contemporary performing arts in Berlin where in recent years ‘international’ has become a local phenomenon. The second edition was held in summer 2013 and ran for three weeks at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele and at various venues across the city.
“one of the most admirably daring live realisations of an album ever. It demands to be seen and remembered”
“some sort of god damn creative masterclass”
