Cadavre Exquis

Kassys creates this new project in collaboration with Nature Theater of Oklahoma (US), Tim Crouch (UK) and Nicole Beutler (DE/NL). They will do this according to the principle of a Cadavre Exquis, which is also the title; each company will make a part of 15 minutes that starts with the last image of the previous part, without knowing what preceded that last image. Everything else is open: the set may get changed or even destroyed, extras can being added, a dance performance can suddenly become a film or the other way around and the story can go either way.
