CAFÉ KAFKA VIDEO LANGUAGE 

 

This satirical opera ( inspired by the shorts stories of Kafka) drew its video language from images of warfare as glanced at on TV, the sea and sailing for the arrival of The Hunter Gracchus and as with The Commission from the reanimation of the painting of the actual surface of the set.
