More details:

Fiona Shaw takes the role of artist Galactia in Howard Barker’s darkly humorous, provocative play. Commissioned to paint a vast canvas celebrating a naval victory, Galactia creates instead a breathtaking scene of war-torn carnage. In her fierce determination to stay true to herself, she alienates the authorities and faces incarceration.

Scenes from an Execution is a fearless exploration of sexual politics and the timeless tension between personal ambition and moral responsibility, between the patron’s demands and the artist’s autonomy.

From Time Out’s four star review ‘...[Fiona] Shaw is wonderful as a free spirit beginning to fray at the edges. Superficially she is having a whale of a time winding up Venice’s pompous elite.

...[Scenes from an Execution] is a rousing defence of the role of the outsider artist in society, a plea for the right to be able to create art that disturbs.'
