Thermidor/Apricots/Camel Station archiveThermidor: 1937, Moscow. Party activist Anya Pakhanova is summoned to a preliminary investigation at KGB Headquarters. What follows is a short, sharp, analytical look at Stalinism in the Soviet Union in the 1930s. Apricots (adult content which may cause offence): 1971. Sam and Anna sit in their garden, dinner guests gone, kids in bed. In the short course of the action the couple talk, argue, copulate and masturbate. Isolated from each other they struggle for power in their relationship using sex as a tool and a weapon. A lyrical, erotic interlude on the sexual politics of love in marriage. Camel Station : 2001, a mountainside in North Iraq. 14 year old Tarik, tasked by his father to guard the sheep, writes and rehearses an audition piece for the Storytellers' Course at the Hakawati School in Nineveh. Saddam Hussein, an old midwife and American jets in a provocative and scandalous tale. (Written to protest the war on terror for the Not in Our Name movement in New York, this is the first full production of Camel Station.)
