MARTYR

WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY JOHAN KNATTRUP
PRODUCED BY MADS DAMSBO // MAKROPOL

MARTYR is a dinner performance that explores animal-human relationships through food and collective virtual reality. 

Donald made a choice. Right then and there, in the sandbox, he made a choice that changed his life forever. Donald chose to attack! 30 years later Donald and his choice are once again on the menu. 

MARTYR is the story of a duck’s journey : from innocent poultry to exalted terrorist, and told by the victim of the attack. A paradoxical tale of the human-animal friendship and about the lurking threat of consciousness. MARTYR is trying to uncover why Donald choses to attack.
