We would like to point out that Marie Brassard’s “Peepshow” doesn’t have anything to do with the play “Peepshow” by George Tabori which was written in 1984 for the Bochumer Schauspielhaus.

Brigitte Fürle talks to Marie Brassard
In English

Marie Brassard is Little Red Riding Hood, among other things. In a breathtaking kaleidoscope of intimate stories about temptation, flirtation and broken hearts she leads us into unfathomed landscapes of sexual fantasies, radical manipulation of the body and hallucinogenic drugs, working with sound to defamiliarize her manifold characters. As a «poetic documenter and chronicler of parallel worlds» she researches the phenomenon of social taboo against the backdrop of a society that is marked by religious fundamentalism.

“People would look amazing if when they met other people it would leave marks on their bodies. Their faces would bear the traces of all the kisses, all the bites, and all the hands that ran through their hair. People would be beautiful. They would be wearing the marks of others for everyone to see.”
Marie Brassard

With her multimedia Peepshow Marie Brassard presents her third solo project at Berliner Festspiele. In 2002 and 2003 she already presented Jimmy and La Noirceur at the Festwochen.
