Description


Based on  Bertolt Brecht's  collection of anti-fascist vignettes,  The Boxing Match imagines a world dominated by surveillance.  The audience is seated in the center of the space, encircled by Brecht's interwoven scenes. Recorded throughout the production by surveillance cameras, they themselves become the spectacle, appearing as protagonists on characters' home televisions.
