Every House Has a Door
Let us think of these things always. Let us speak of them never.

Time Out Chicago praised the show for “..the meticulous way that the piece invites comparisons–between film and theater, between Croatian and English, between Stephen Fiehn’s delicate hops up the aisles and lanky Mislav Čavajda’s long strides right behind him–and for its potent tonal blend of pedagogy and ominous revelation.”

“Let us think of these things… keeps viewers hooked with scenes and images that suck you in, hold you close and turn you loose. For every bawdy or slapstick gesture there are equal parts silence and reflection.” – Chicago Art Magazine

Lin Hixson & Matthew Goulish, co-founders of performance group Goat Island, propose a cultural encounter via the films of Serbian filmmaker Dusan Makavejev and the work of American philosopher Stanley Cavell, through responses to an unlikely, “equidistant” third entity, Ingmar Bergman. Film becomes a basis for choreography, a catalogue of abandoned practices offers a degree of humor, and theater frames an encounter of difference and engage the histories of utopianism and revolt in an unjust world.

The creation of this performance has been supported by a grant from the Trust for Mutual Understanding. It is a co-production with OOUR and Centre for Drama Art with further support from the City Office for Culture Zagreb, The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, ekscene platform in collaboration with CeKaO “Zagreb”, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, FACE Croatia, commissioning support from The Nuffield Theatre, Lancaster, UK, and a United States Artists Ziporyn Fellowship.
