knives in hens

"The stylised presentation enables the inner passion of the characters' complex relationship to be visualised. This sublimates the realistic plot, and illuminates the metaphorical text."
Fleurs des Lettres

 

Two years after the Hong Kong premiere of David Harrower's Blackbird, Theatre du Pif presents his breathtaking first play.

Set in a god-fearing, pre-industrial community, a young woman comes to terms with an ancient hatred, an unexpected betrayal, and a growing sense of her place in the world.

Part psychological drama part allegory Knives in Hens is a primal story, elemental and mystical about fear and hate, innocence and evil.
