A dark carnival of ensemble physical theatre, mime, clowning, music and song launches the work of new company London European Theatre with their innovative and powerful production of Peter Weiss's Marat/Sade.
Twenty years after the French Revolution, the Marquis de Sade - shut away in a lunatic asylum - directs his fellow inmates in a play based on the murder of leading French revolutionary Jean-Paul Marat. As the events leading to the murder of Marat unfold, the lines between performance and reality blur. The play becomes a biting and timely comment on the conflicts between social and historical duties and unrestrained individualism, in a society under constant and overbearing surveillance.
This is a dynamic and arresting piece of total theatre that incorporates inventive movement, atmospheric vocal work and thought provoking intellectual debate. Not for the faint-hearted, an intense theatrical experience that explores the nature of revolution and the liberating power of theatre.
