Fionnuala Gygax worked for three weeks in the Ballhaus Ost in Berlin, developing a multidisciplinary theatre piece exploring pornography and its impact on society. She has been developing this production for the last 6 months, mentored by theatre-maker Johanna Freiburg (She She Pop) through the Pan Pan International Mentorship. The i-Portunus mobility support allowed her to extend her mentorship with Johanna Freiburg and work with her in a more focused way in Berlin. The show is a solo piece and at the end of the three weeks an informal work in progress was showed for an invited audience. As well as developing this project, Gygax saw German performances, set up meetings with venues/festivals and met German artists and potential collaborators.
I succeeded in creating a rough 60 minute piece of work during these 3 weeks, ready to enter into the next phase of development – workshopping and rehearsals with a full production team, with the hope of presentation in 2020.
