Presentation

  • Milo Rau's La Reprise – History/ies of theatre (I) is another expression of the German-speaking Swiss director's desire to explore what the theatre can do when faced with reality. The product of collective work following a shockingly violent true story (the murder of a gay man in Liège in 2012 by four young men), it is for Milo Rau a way to tell the origins of a modern tragedy. And he challenges the audience about the representation of this tragedy, and the questions it asks: How to bring a victim to life on the stage? How to tackle History head on? How to represent violence on the stage? What is emotion, truth, presence, artistic engagement? With this deep, intense show, Milo Rau tries to use those questions to define the essence of the theatre as art: to use reality as a source, not to imitate it on the stage, but for the performance to “become real,” and lead to true catharsis.

    Milo Rau
    Born in 1977 in Switzerland, Milo Rau has spent the past fifteen years creating performative plays with his production company, International Institute of Political Murder. Whether he is talking about the downfall of the Ceaucescus, of the Rwandan genocide, of the war in the Congo, or of the Dutroux affair, he always turns the stage into a place of experimentation and exploration, which reflects his constant desire to confront the real and to consider the time of the performance as catharsis. He has recently been appointed director of the Ghent National Theatre, starting with the 2018/2019 season.
