Susanne Kennedy

Susanne Kennedy (born 1977) is among the most important European directors at present. She studied theatre in Germany and France, and in 2005 she earned her degree in directing in Amsterdam. Alongside visual artist Markus Selg, she creates spaces that bring together the atmosphere of video games and psychedelic hallucinations. Her performances are a radical invitation to address the challenges of the present, erasing the line between actors and machines. In her productions, actors wear masks and talk with pre-recorded voices, and in using hypnotic images she calls into question the unequivocal representation of reality. By pushing the limits of theatre and taking it to another level, while also going back to the archaic roots of the ritual, Susanne Kennedy gives a unique insight into the way we understand ourselves and the reasons we have been thrown into the world.
