theatre - Season 14/15
In CRY, TROJANS! (Troilus & Cressida), The Wooster Group takes a decidedly American approach to the Trojan side of Shakespeare’s dark and scabrous Trojan War play. A vexing tale of sincere love corrupted and the downfall of a noble hero.
Las Ideas draws us into the life and mental universe of an artist. We see the transformation of an idea at work from the inside: how it takes shape, grows and acquires a definitive expression.
In June you can get to know the latest generation of actors, theatre-makers and technicians at the Kaaistudios, KVS Box and Bronks. The students of the theatre department at Rits/School of Arts will be putting on their graduation pieces there.
The diptych Manon and Jean van Florette tells the story of an urbanite who takes up residence in a village in le Midi. This ‘alien’ is not really welcome. Comp. Marius performs with a minimal set and a maximum of imagination, in the open air and by daylight.
De Schpountz is a farce in which misunderstandings between a conceited young artist and a hardworking shopkeeper are settled amid the sausages and the Roquefort cheese. A piece of genuine, captivating folk theatre.
