Now’ and I once described it as ‘the most genuinely romantic speech in contemporary British playwriting’ and I was wrong. Of course it does, because it’s a play and it’s a piece of theatre and theatre is wall-to-wall doubling and things not quite being themselves.

Cleansed by Sarah Kane

Richards named it, vehicle and tenor. Drug-addicted Graham, gay couple Rod and Carl, prostitute Grace. When you see that figure walking across the stage, you’re watching two people at the same time, an actor and a character, and they can never – never never never – be completely united.

Rod I love you now. Show 25 25 50 All. A play that explores human relationship, relationship between sisters and brothers, and overall between us and the objective reality. Thus, the people living in it are prisoners and kanf dependent upon help and sources of knowledge of some external powers in society. If the assumption turned out to be wrong then the following question would seem urgently justified: After these considerations it becomes clear how close the relationship between Grace and Graham already is.


After the first seven scenes, the four crucial love-stories are introduced: Katie Mitchell’s is a theatre of naturalist means if not ends ; Kane’s is a theatre saraah to naturalism. That Rod has forgiven Carl becomes clear when he finally repeats the pledge of love originally delivered by Carl: But why don’t we say that for Shakespeare’s stage directions?

Cleansed review – the first cut was the deepest

It’s not that I hate theater, I don’t, I just hate bad theater. For Robin, Grace is his object of love; he himself is the subject in love. Nov 04, Leajk rated it did not like it Recommends it for: What lies under the surface of violence in Cleansed is to a large extent the idealized cognitive model for romantic love.

At one moment in this production, the dancer Grace is watched by Robin dressed in Grace’s clothes who is then comforted by Grace; we are watching the Three Graces and indeed the staging gives us echoes of Canova’s statue several times. So it looked like it feels.

In general, the atrocities committed by Tinker seem to follow a kind of cause-effect calculus. This thought, elaborated and extended, runs right through Cleansed. Tinker then szrah out Carl’s tongue and makes him swallow Rod’s ring.

The ideas and themes are present- and fascinating- but her mechanisms for showing them only damaged their strength, rather than demonstrate them Felt very meh overall, you could totally skip this one from the Kane canon. They embrace, and then have sex. I have actually been overwhelmed by tow feelings: Narrative as a series of punches. In the National Theatre production directed by Katie Mitchell, he then shoots her before turning the gun on himself and committing suicide.


But ultimately, love is such a common thing in Kane’s work.

Cleansed by Sarah Kane. Jan 10, Paula rated it really liked it.

When his hands are being cut off, he goes on expressing his love with a dance of love and after he loses his feet Rod and Carl finally make love.

What ensued was that humans were looking for their second half and after they had found it embraced it until clewnsed died of starvation or general apathy.

Cleansed review – Katie Mitchell plunges us into Sarah Kane’s chamber of horrors

Rod claims that Carl does not even know his real name, and states that he would never die for Carl. What Katie Mitchell’s production does is ground the imagistic, dreamlike juxtapositions of scenes in Kane’s text, finding in it a rigour and logic and ferocity that will convince even the most cpeansed anti-Kaneans apart from Quentin Letts.

The dancing woman is also Grace. They might be in an animated Magritte. This has shortly been hinted at in scene three where Grace suffers a nervous ccleansed.
