20:00, Tue 1st – Sat 5th March 2005 at Christ's New Court Theatre
Lent Week 6
People drift across a lost world turning the stage into a dreamscape. The Street of Crocodiles fuses the stories and life of the Polish writer Bruno Schulz through physical theatre, mime and Kafka-esque metamorphoses. Joseph is tangled in the web of his memories that are reborn menacingly just beyond his grasp. A blend of the real and fantastic, these stories lead the audience down the path of Joseph’s disintegration to his final, chilling destruction. Birds eggs are hatched in attics, characters morph into cockroaches and tailor’s dummies come to life in this work of startling absurdity and extraordinary imagination.
