About the event

In french subtitled in english

The famous theatre director Peter Brook and his longtime partner Marie-Hélène Estienne, present a new work mulling the ultimate questions of existence.

A poignant reflection created by a theatrical master mind as his career comes to a close, Why? is an extraordinary introspective opus by a relentless artist and visionary. In it he asks: Why theater? What’s it for? What is it about? Brook, who has been based in France since the 1970s, has revolutionized the performing arts around the world for multiple generations of artists through his work and writings.

Theatre is a very dangerous weapon.  - These words have been written in the 1920s by one of the most innovative directors the theatre has known, V. E. Meyerhold. He saw all the menacing dangers theatre and art were going through in the 30s in Russia. Until the very last minute, he hoped that the revolution could win, and paid for this with his life.

Under the direction of Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne, the three actors, Kathryn Hunter, Hayley Carmichael and Marcello Magni will unfold this very human story.
