Agents and Provocateurs

The Russian writer Sergei Dovlatov once said: “We endlessly curse Comrade Stalin, and, of course, for the cause. And yet, I want to ask—who wrote the four million denunciations?” This immersive performance created by Dasha Ziborova and Juliette Hermant invites the audience to participate in the sinister process of creating “denunciative drawings.” Commencing at Maison Bergogne with a perfomance, then threaded throughout the day and town, look out for these agents and provocateurs, they will surely be watching you.
