Ceremonial Kisses explores the effect indoctrination and guilt can have on the development of a personality. Within the play we experience the increasing torment of the main character/Master of Ceremonies through the actions and presence of the Chorus/Choir.
Shading the Crime was premiered by Lusty Juventus in January 1998, co-directed by the authors of this article. The play is set in a special police unit in an unnamed country where gender-specific torture is used to humiliate, control and exert power over female ‘political prisoners’. This country has a healthy tourist industry, despite its human rights atrocities, and is also seeking to secure trade deals. The play explores the duplicity of Western countries when dealing with and selling torture equipment to regimes that they know to be involved in human rights abuses.
