She Is Conann
The story of the legendary fantasy character is flipped on its head in Bertrand Mandico’s blood-soaked and glitter-littered spectacle.
Hellhound Rainer (an unrecognisable Elina Löwensohn) narrates the tale of Conann, a young girl destined, with Rainer’s guidance, to become a cruel and barbaric force to be feared. Leaping through her six lives and forever destined to be killed by her future selves, the tale of Conann is a time- and body-shifting tour de force, a love letter to the macabre and the gruesome. SE
