MUNCITOR: All Workers Go to Heaven by Ioana Păun premiered at Theatre Royal Stratford East

07 - 11/07/2012 @ Theatre Royal Stratford East, Gerry Raffles Square, London E15 1BN

Provocative director Ioana Păun tackles urgent socio-political topics, in a theatrical performance bordering a behavioural experiment. A live art piece that aims at questioning the current social order. Thanks to its structure that leaves the audience in complete control, the show practically writes itself as the public is pushed to respond to unexpected challenges.

This exciting participatory theatre experience has been dev​eloped by Ioana Păun during her 2012 residency at Theatre Royal Stratford East. Pãun is a theatre director whose cutting-edge work has been showcased as part of international festivals across Europe.

"Once people are put in an environment in unequal positions will they work to maintain inequality or against it? Does hierarchy cause anxiety? How much inequality will they take?"
