On her radar

In the sunday edition of THE GUARDIAN the BBC 6 Music DJ Mary Anne Hobbs’s mentioned Everything that happened and would happen as her personal Nr.1 theatre highlight: "Heiner Goebbels’s epic three-hour performance piece explores the many dimensions of history between the first world war and the present day. It was set in a vast, dystopian former railway yard in Manchester in October and I found it deeply meditative. The director drew together elements of theatre, modern dance, experimental live music and architectural lighting design, while the performers built and collapsed their own beautiful sets as the show unfolded. The live narration spinning all the way through the piece suggested to me that history is incomplete, corrupt, full of confusion, and interpreted differently from every perspective."


"thrillingly imaginative..."
