“Fox is one of the most adventurous impresarious of the New York avant-garde. [Death of Nations I is] Hallucinatory. Chilling. Stunning.”
-Jason Zinoman, The New York Times
“At once abstract and visceral, You Belong To Me: Death of Nations Part V is a fascinating and surreally beautiful exploration of war and its social context, with a particular focus on violence, eroticism, and fantasy… Fox and company present a collage of striking images, fractured narrative, and sung sequences that make for a bold, original, and utterly compelling theatrical experience.”
– Dan Bacalzo, TheaterMania (full review)
The International WOW unveils a new, global collaboration between Josh Fox and Frank Raddatz, former dramaturg to Heiner Müller. Traversing the Civil War’s finale, the campaign of Native American genocide, Germany’s fall after WW II, and climaxing at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (the largest U.S. military hospital outside the country and primary care provider for all U.S. soldiers seriously injured in Iraq), this erotic and phantasmagoric epic is an intensely physical and musical rollercoaster ride of love, betrayal and murder throughout the ages.
