Absurd comic horror

Three stories by master of the macabre Franz Kafka explore the twists and turns of legal limbo, border paranoia, and offshore detention and torture.

‘Before the Law’ is a haunting allegory about a man waiting outside a door; ‘The Burrow’ is a black comedy about a creature obsessed with holes and tunnels; and ‘In the Penal Colony’ is a perverse demonstration by an insane officer of a torture device on an island prison.

Kafka wrote: ‘a book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.’

His nightmarish vision has never been more timely.

This visceral new work by one of Perth’s leading devisor-performers (WISH, SKIN) and the creative team who brought you HIRO make you feel the absurdity and horror of what lies on our doorstep.
