For those of you who haven’t had a chance to see the absolutely mind- and soul-shaking rendition of Cleansed by the new Glasgow-based Fear No Colours Theatre Group – and for those who’d like a glimpse into what has driven its director and actors, and shaped the characters – I’ve put together a video narrative from a backstage chat I had with them and from their performance I attended Saturday, June 13, at Leipzig’s Neues Schauspiel. Stick ’til the end of the video to hear their impressions on Leipzig. You can see them live next at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (5-31 Aug. 2015), performing two Sarah Kane plays at C-nova: Cleansed, once again, and Phaedra’s Love.
