Event Details

By Mark Ravenhill and David Chisholm

Created in collaboration with Jude Anderson, Emmanuel Bernardoux, Mauricio Carrasco, Fernando Garnero and Matthew Gingold

The Experiment asks the impossible question. Would you kill a child if it meant that you would save countless other lives?

Inspired by the writings of ethicist Peter Singer, British playwright Mark Ravenhill’s text sits at the core of this chilling new collaboration led by composer David Chisholm.

Narrated and performed by guitarist Mauricio Carrasco and immersed in visceral imagery by Emmanuel Bernardoux, the elements of this haunting monodrama are formed through the digital and scenic alchemy of media artist Matthew Gingold.

The Experiment is the provocative world premiere of a horror story for our times.
