Tampere Theatre Festival: Marat / Sade

A group of inmates of Charenton Asylum are staging a play while the work’s overseer, the Marquis de Sade, a patient himself, is engaging in conversations with the subject at hand, the late Jean-Paul Marat, the assassinated hero of the French Revolution.

In this rendition of Peter Weiss’s revered German play, three Swedish-speaking Finnish theatres join forces with theatre powerhouse and Finlandia Prize winning author, director Juha Hurme. Together they twist and turn the original to produce new shapes out of a sharp, funny and shocking work that ingeniously maneuvers itself between individualism and politics while pondering the alternatives of total control and complete anarchy.

Performed in Swedish, subtitled in Finnish and English.
