Cleansed

Tinker practises the art of atrocity, but even he isn’t immune from the need for love. Existing on the border between beauty and brutality, Cleansed imagines a world in which language, human relationships and the body itself are pared away to bare bone.

One of Britain’s most influential playwrights, Sarah Kane (1971 – 99) received her National Theatre debut in an unflinching new production by Katie Mitchell in February 2016, for which Melanie designed the sound.
