Claire Thill is a Luxembourg-based writer, performer, and theatremaker interested in exploring multidisciplinary territories of performance and storytelling. Her pieces start from concepts and broader themes rather than from a structured idea of the plot. She intertwines different elements such as text and the body in movement with image and audio in order to create performance structures that are at once multilayered and fragmented.
She used her residency at the Fish Factory to delve deep into the preparation of her latest theatre project, an adaptation of Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s ‘Der Besuch der alten Dame’. The piece uses the original script in order to investigate the feminist and women narratives hidden behind the lines. During her stay, she wrote and re-wrote fragments and extensively researched themes such as trauma, collective guilt, and rituals of forgiveness.
