Mrs& Marx is a multilingual theatre piece that gets two migrants to examine a love story from the annals of history. The audience has to witness and participate in the long lost art of communal dreaming which invokes 'spirits and spectres' of Jenny and Mohr. Inspired by the literature and documentation available on the Marx household, the man behind the revolutionary Karl Marx, is seen through the eyes of Jenny Marx, his unrelenting wife, lover and collaborator. While the characters of Karl and Jenny Marx are embodied by the performers, Satchit Puranik and Michaela Talwar of India and Germany respectively, the genre of documentary theatre juxtaposes the performers’ experiences in the present day context with that of the world of the Marxs, making it all the more relevant.
Directed and performed by Satchit Puranik& Michaela Talwar
