Abstract

The show included “Portrait of Dora” by Cixous, “They Alone Know”, “Professor Tarane” by Adamov and DASAO!’s “The Homecoming”. Peel and Tso’s involvement with pieces other than “Dora” is unknown.

A pre-show interview for “Dora” in “Farrago”, dated August 1987, noted that it was a feminist interpretation of one of Freud’s famous case histories, examining hysteria as a channel for repressed feminine desire. It was originally written for radio. The production was not Brechtian, but rather relied on illusion and engagement as devices. It used an expressionistic set and men dressed in ballet tights.
