Nadja is a devised adaptation of André Breton’s 1928 surrealist novel. His autobiographical story depicts a series of eight encounters he has with a woman, he names, ‘Nadja’.
Our adaptation dismantles the mobile mantle of a woman's life, a life that was called Nadja but may have been mine, (or maybe yours.) A trifocal troupe of artists animate consenting objects in a contract to expand and condense time.
An ice installation melts throughout, fish swim in circles and windows turn red. Expect to witness the annihilation of women, cis males and acts of entitlement.
We want to take our audience on a series of marvellous steps to free ourselves from societal norms and expectations.
