Our take

Tár star Cate Blanchett portrays 13 characters—including an anchorwoman, factory worker and corporate CEO—in Julian Rosefeldt’s innovative experimental piece. Inspired by Dadaism and Situationism, this tribute to artistic and political manifestos owes much to Blanchett’s tour-de-force performance.
