"Attempts On Her Life"

This is one of the most demanding art projects I have ever done. And, yes, I should say it is definitely an "art project".
This theatrical performance is part acting, part dramatic movement, and part live music.
Also, the set is wonderful (Granted I had no part in that, but I will still make mention of it).

"Attempts On Her Life"
by Martin Crimp
Directed by Natasha Martina

In 17 scenarios for the theatre, the central figure to this play (Ann, Annie, Anya, Anny...) is shown as everything from a terrorist to a pornographic movie star, a femme fatal to a little girl. Martin Crimp examines 20th century obsessions while getting the audience to ask vital questions about themselves and their society.
