Hungarian premiere

Have a Nice Hell production is a combination of the performance by Good Girl Killer duet and objects made by Patrycja Orzechowska. The performance was prepared to be presented in galleries - spaces where there is 'a white cube' instead of a stage and 'art objects' in place of scenography.

The starting point for our work was the subject of fear. People are afraid of lots of things. In our childhood we were all afraid of darkness, vacuum cleaners, thunderstorms and witches. Nowadays we are afraid of epidemic, nuclear war, terrorism, radioactivity, old age, bereavement and death.

Nevertheless, we are not going to frighten the audience. We don’t want to carry them through catharsis. The scenes that you can see in the performance can seem to be comical or even absurd. We would like the audience to ask themselves a question about their own fear and think about the situations in which they experience it.

Good Girl Killer was founded in 2005 by four polish artists: Magda Jedra, Zbigniew Zibi Bienkowski, Anna Steller and Grzegorz Welizarowicz. The Good Girl Killer collective has worked in the fields of dance, theatre, performance art, music, multimedia. Formally and ideologically their artistic and other activities endeavor to mix genres.
