    The Destroyed Room takes inspiration from Jeff Wall’s famous photograph, which shows a ransacked room, every item of furniture torn up and destroyed.

    The show begins with what seems to be the recording of a debate. A group of guests gather. They drink wine, discuss things they have witnessed and debate the ethics of watching. Cameras film every word and every reaction. As the debate intensifies, slowly and as if in a dream, the atmosphere begins to change.

    The Destroyed Room is about what we see and what we turn away from. And what’s coming. / @VPointTheatreCo
