“Margret” is a documentary theatre project based on a collection of photographs, diaries, and objects that were recently found in a suitcase in Cologne, Germany.  The materials obsessively document a secret love affair between a German business executive and his young secretary starting in 1969 and ending approximately one year later. This found work of art, or art brut, recalls the work of Sophie Calle and Hans-Peter Feldman and like these artists "relentlessly exposes the audience to their own voyeurism."  Even in our time of total exposure in social media, these materials still maintain the power to shock and fascinate.

The piece will be directed by Paul Bargetto with texts by Malgorzata Sikorska Mizczuk, research by Niels Buttner, design by Ilona Binarsch and hair and makeup by Jaga Hupało.  It will be performed by Grzegorz Sierzputowski, Marta Krol, and Agnieszka Rozkowska, and will premiere in Winter 2019 with a prelude version in May, 2019 as part of Warsaw Night of Museums.
