The Merzspiel

26 February

£7 – £12

Theatre by the Lake in Keswick, Cumbria

 

Refusing to let the minor inconvenience of being dead inhibit his boundless energy and creativity, the legendary painter, sculptor, collagist, printmaker, typographer, performer, writer and poet Kurt Schwitters has hijacked the body of British actor Paul Brightwell in order to re-present Merz, his one-man art movement, live on stage.

Schwitters left Germany in 1937 for exile in Norway, until the Nazi invasion in 1940 prompted his escape to Britain. After 18 months’ internment he lived in West London before moving with his companion Edith Thomas to Ambleside in Cumbria, where he lived and worked until his death in 1948.

 


7.30pm – 8.45pm
