XThis work is part of a project that includes live performances filmed in public spaces, as well as monologues and reflections based on two books by the theatre critic Jan Kott.
Filippos Tsitsopoulos, who grew up with the theatre because his father was an actor, used fragments of books by Kott to reconstruct the imaginary London-based life of the author.
Tsitsopoulos makes Jan Kott visit, in the course of a single day, the inside of a theatre that represents a life full of action and the contemplation of works of art. The work was inspired by Kafka’s story "Ein Käfig ging einen Vogel suchen" (A cage that went in search of a bird), analysed in details in Kott’s essays. The project Kage - Where K is for Kott was created by Filippos Tsitsopoulos and shown in more than sixty locations, theatres and institutions in London*.
* The project was developed with the support of: The Serpentine Galleries, The Whitechapel Gallery, Frieze Art Fair, Artsadmin, Toynbee Studios, Unit 24, C&C Gallery, Chelsea Theatre, Colchester Arts Centre, Unit 24, Southbank Centre- Queens walk, Tate Modern amongst others.
