BASED ON THE "MAHABHARATA" AND
THE PLAY WRITTEN BY JEAN-CLAUDE CARRIÈRE
ADAPTED & DIRECTED BY PETER BROOK AND MARIE-HÉLÈNE ESTIENNE
En anglais, surtitré en français
 



"The Mahabharata is not simply a book, nor a great series of books, it is an immense canvas covering all the aspects of human existence. In it we find all the questions of our lives, in a way that is at once contemporary and urgent. Over many thousands of years The Mahabharata shows us, in an always-unexpected way, how to open our eyes to what reality demands. The Mahabharata speaks of a great war of extermination, which tears apart the Bharata family. On one side there are five brothers, the Pandavas, and on the other side their cousins, the Kauravas, the hundred sons of the blind King Dritarashtra. Both sides use terrible weapons of destruction. At the end the Pandavas win. Millions of dead bodies lie on the ground. And now the eldest of the Pandavas - Yudishtira - is compelled to become King. The victory has the bitter taste of defeat. Both Yudishtira and Dritarashtra, the old King, are in deep distress and remorse, questioning their past actions, trying to unravel their own responsibility for the disaster. How, having to live with this terrible massacre, having lost their sons, their families, their allies, will the new King and the old one find an inner peace?

The richness of the language of this timeless epic, and it's always astonishing stories, allow us to bring to the stage this situation, which, belonging to the past, reflects at the same time the harsh conflicts of today." Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne

» Judged purely as a piece of stagecraft, the work is breathtaking. Although it is jointly directed, it bears all the trademarks we associate with Brook. A sun-baked stagecloth, beautifully lit by Philippe Vialatte, evokes a world of aridity and heat. The simplest means are also used to tell the text's unfolding stories. [...] The result is a dazzling piece of theatre that makes us contemplate the endless cycle of human destruction but induces a sense of resignation rather than rousing us to action. The Guardian, Michael Billington
