Just booked for Katie Mitchell and Paper Architect
They are odd at the Barbican.. got the e mail literally an hour before the booking opened....not that there is a great rush at the Barbican....but still nice to have a look at what is coming up a few days in advance!

Yeah but was that one set in 1930s Berlin ? The ballgowns, the old gramaphone ....

I think I'll give this one a miss but go for Frøken Julie starring Sofie Gråbøl which I'm sure the Barbican will put on soon.

Ah, I see, part of the same strand that brought us that little video installation about Ophelia at the NT, the homage to Peter Greenaway. Somehow she is such an old-fashioned director, all that expressionistic Fritz Lang stuff.
Her Xmas show didn't sell very well at the NT this year as far as I could see, people tired with her frightening the children I suppose, plus a hard job to sell Hansel and Gretel to boys in the 7+ age bracket as was apparently intended - again, it struck me as a very 1950's idea, KM perpetually looking back to her own middle-class childhood instead of forward.
