MAKING MRS MARX
Journey into the soul of a woman betrayed by her famed husband, philosopher Karl Marx.
Local to NYC, home-grown Melbournite Clara Francesca Pagone, brings you her “deeply affecting performance” one-woman show. Clara takes her own unusual but thrilling approach to introducing us to Jenny Marx, the wife of philosopher Karl Marx. We’re witnessing the birth of a character on the stage and her destruction before the end. It’s not straight-forward biography but a glimpse into the soul of a woman who was devoted and supportive of her husband until she discovers his betrayal.
Making Mrs Marx premiered at Intentional Sarasolo Festival, Florida winning Best Performance Artist, then touring Brooklyn in Title Point’s New Works Interrobang Festival, acclaimed as “thrilling” and a “sensitively realized look at Jenny Marx”.
