ST JOAN OF THE STOCKYARDS
St Joan of the Stockyards by Bertolt Brecht premiered at the Vienna Burgtheater on 30 October 2011. The director was Michael Thalheimer, Olaf Altmann the stage designer.
After the play closed at the Burgtheater, the metal plates from the scenery found a new purpose. Ulrike Nachbargauer reworked the discarded stage parts from St Joan into a kitchen.
St Joan is now a work of art in the kitchen of a villa in Vienna. “She” acts as the central feature in this open space and brings great theatre into a residential environment. What a setting for theatrical cooking!
