Drama Queens – a play by ELMGREEN & DRAGSET, text by Tim ETCHELLS ///// LOOK – Container Cinema – 1061 Budapest, Andrássy út 1 ///// from 18 to 26 September 2010, open from 12 to 8pm /////
Drama Queens is the filmed version of Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset’s performance with text by me – a play without actors that was first shown at Skulptur Projekte Münster in 2007. Seven 20th Century superstar sculptures find themselves trapped on a theatre stage and out of their usual context. How do they interact with this new environment and with each other? The drama unfolds through a series of clashes and crossovers between the various >isms< and aesthetics which these sculptures represent.
Container Cinema is a newsstand temporarily transformed into a 6-person film theatre located on the corner of Andrássy and Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út. Screenings start every hour.
