Dreiske Discipline Lecture Demonstration"
Directed by Ildiko Szabo
One of the best
realizations of theatre on film, this 1983 Hungarian production documents
Nicole Dreiske's production of Maidsplay, an original theatre piece
inspired by Jean Genet's The Maids in Budapest. The production
utilizes actual information about the two sisters whose extraordinary
crime inspired Genet to write The Maids and highlights the themes
of violence, sex, drugs, jealousy, and incest in the story of the two
sisters who, employed as maids in the same house, take turns playing the
role of their mistress in a secret and bizarre ritual. The second part of
the tape illustrates the basic techniques of The Dreiske Discipline as led
by Nicole Dreiske in actor workshops in Budapest. Produced by Judit
Koszanyi, directed by Ildiko Szabo. A BBS/Mafilm production. In English.
