Tampere Theatre Festival: La Reprise. Histoire(s) du théâtre (I)

Milo Rau, one of Europe’s premier theatre directors, brings us La Reprise. Histoire(s) du théâtre (I), a work that challenges the distinction between performance and reality.

A crime story in five acts, La Reprise is based on actual events that took place in Liège, Belgium, one night in April 2012. A man named Ihsane Jarfi was talking with a group of young men sitting in a car near a club. Later that night he was brutally murdered.

Using multiple points of view, Rau performs a meticulous autopsy not only on a heinous crime but also on the current state of Europe. A shocking declaration of democratic reality theatre, La Reprise presents us with a startling emotional spectrum that mirrors cruelty and terror, loss and grief, fear and love.

What precedes a crime? An intention, a coincidence or a plan? What role does the audience play? Can we place guilt on society also?
