“One of the most interesting ways that Katie Mitchell’s naturalist practice creates paradoxes is in the way it stages women’s lives and experiences.”
4x45 is an innovative series of commissioned academic lectures and interviews, captured on film, providing a range of perspectives on a topic, theme or practitioner. Each volume, comprising four chapters, is hosted on Digital Theatre+ and published in print by Routledge.
In this conversation from Volume One, ‘The Theatre of Katie Mitchell’, Dan Rebellato of Royal Holloway, University of London, and Kim Solga of the University of Western Ontario explore the ethics and aesthetics within Mitchell’s oeuvre. Solga considers the feminist politics of Mitchell’s work, and Rebellato places Mitchell’s work within the historical context of naturalism, leading to a detailed discussion of Sarah Kane’s radical naturalism and Mitchell’s production of Cleansed.
