Gallery of Dead Women

Maja Delak

Gallery of Dead Women is a stage installation created through a dialogue with Hamletmachine, writen by H. Müller. It explores the trinity of fiction-terror-politics and on the level of form inquires the possibilities of human response to it.

Gallery of Dead Women is the manifestation of research activities in the creative process conducted by AGON-R (Research)*. The work currently focuses on the process of constructing stage language and on the research of possible strategies.
