Sandwiched in the middle of the 90s season at Styx is the Anthony Neilson’s 1991 play, a horrifying tale based on the Düsseldorf Ripper Peter Kurten’s crimes in the late 1920s.
'Blasted’ Sarah Kane’s first play ‘about love and violence and rape and war’ very much suits the raw, concreted naked space at Styx. First performed in 1995 at the Royal Court Theatre, the piece should in theory, still have a strong contemporary resonance over 20 years later.
I fell into the world of immersive theatre when Punchdrunk's "The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable" opened at Temple Studios in 2013. The mystery and seduction of the piece was mesmerising, and for a time I found myself captured by the explorative nature of the work.
