Antonin Artaud's Jet of Blood

A radio-theater dramatization of Antonin Artaud's short surrealist play, JET OF BLOOD (also translated as SPURT OF BLOOD)  written in 1925... Artaud presents a fantastic temporal spectrum of creation and destruction speeded up and slowed down, like a phonograph record. Associating gluttony and lust, sex and violence, even innocence and swinishness, The Jet of Blood attacks the senses with bizarre sights and sounds as it reaches toward our subconscious impulses and fears.

The play was adapted for radio by Rolf Semprebon and performed by Rolf, Zasus Sweetlips, G Violetta, Rascho, Dave Slacker, Jeff, Stella, and Christie.
