Trickster – Catch me if you can!


Inspired by the mythological gure of the Trickster and the fairground booth, Jan Jedenak involves the audience in a dodgy game of throwing and shooting. A game who’s aim is transformation, the desire for manipulation and the responsibility of the
audience. They are invited to attend the skinning of multiple personalities, become the
wirepuller of the event, and perhaps encounter the strangeness in their own thoughts and desires.
