WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Fernando Arrabal's Garden of Delights, a provocative mingling of the Theater of Cruelty and Theater of the Absurd, is designed to punish and delight audiences in equal measure. Diving headfirst into the psyche of a tortured artist, Dirt[contained] Theatre Company takes you on a promenade immersive journey through a transformed warehouse gallery and into the surreal depths of human imagination.

Garden of Delights follows Lais, a charming, yet self-loathing actress, through a bizarre and unflinching look at her sadomasochistic experience of love and art. Isolated in her home with only her caged beast-like partner and flock of childish sheep to protect her from the outside world, she spirals down into painful memories and erotic fantasies that blur the line between reality and imagination.
