What happens to someone who is used to being the master if there’s nothing to be master of? A darkly humorous solo about Animal Farm’s Mr Jones as he struggles to bring something, anything, under his control.

After the success of Portrait seen at DDF 08, Ioana Mona Popovici returns to DDF 09 to explore just these questions.  Bizarre new rituals unfold as the determined farmer attempts to bring something, anything, under his control.  Darkly humorous, Work in Regress looks at the interdependence of master and property, playing out the former master’s adaptation to his own obsolescence.

“With her ”Work in Regress”, Ioana Mona Popovici proved that she is a choreographer who dreams her dances with eyes wide open”

BalletTanz International

There will be a post-show discussion with choreographers and performers, Ioana Mona Popovici and Jose Navas, moderated by Laurie Uprichard, Festival Director, on Thursday May 21 following the performance of A Work in Regress.
