Monument-National Book

At the apogee of his impressive career, the illustrious Peter Brook continues to delve deeply the art form to which he has devoted his life.

On an almost bare stage three exceptional actors dismantle the mechanics of theatre with an incredible simplicity. They then summon the Russian director Vsevolod Meyerhold, a fervent revolutionary executed by Staline.

Brook divests in uncompromising fashion all artifice to focus on the essential: Why theatre at all? Why believe in the truth of theatre if it means your own death?

Presented in English with French surtitles.
