Maximilian Balduzzi and Ben Spatz

PLAY/WAR is a highly physical, rhythmically structured exploration of contemporary masculinity through original songs, movement, and text. The heart of the performance is the intense contact between the performers and the shifting dynamics between the two characters, soldier and civilian.

"On a bare stage with only basic lighting, the bodies and voices of the actors are the only instruments, and Spatz and Balduzzi are masterful." -


About the Company: Urban Research Theater


Urban Research Theater develops original theatrical performances out of a continous, long-term practice of performance research. Our commitment to integrating narrative and image with irreducible liveness in performance follows a tradition established by the laboratory theatres of Konstantin Stanislavski and Jerzy Grotowski. We aim to be a theatre laboratory for the twenty-first century.
