2007-2008 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Marivaux's 'La Dispute' and Sarah Kane's 'Cleansed': a parallel reading - Marivaux, Sarah Kane
Launch: Vassiliko Theatre – Substage, 03/12/2007
The presentations rehearsals are the outcome of the Workshop's first cycle research and theatrical application which began in October 2007 and revolved around the parallel readings of two theatrical texts, written in the 18th and 20th century, namely, Marivaux's 'La Dispute' and Sarah Kane's 'Cleansed'. What happens when an 18th century classicist of form (Pierre Carlet de Chamblain de Marivaux) meets with the subversive and deconstructive spirit of an extreme personality of our times (Sarah Kane)? Under what circumstances can two texts converse? How can one be ''read'' through the other? What surprises arise from the inquiry of innocence and what knowledge does the experience of betrayal bring?
