Here is what the performance will be about:
Almost 50 years ago, when Peter Weiss’ Tony Award-winning play and theatrical event premiered, voices demanded change. Today with the Occupy & further worldwide revolutionary movements, once again the streets are alive with youth questioning authority. Marat/Sade captures the politics of these electrifying moments by harkening back to another tumultuous period in world history – the French Revolution. The dialectics of personal & political change are seen through the eyes of its two protagonists: the infamous Marquis de Sade, after whom sadism is named, and a proponent of pleasure; and Jean-Paul Marat, the clarion voice of the people – now awaiting assassination in his bathtub at the hands of the steel-willed, French counter-revolutionary Charlotte Corday. The play itself is performed on July 13 by the inmates of the asylum of Charenton- under the direction of the Marquis, who was housed within its walls. With its bloody depiction of class struggle and human suffering, hope and disillusionment, Marat/Sade is a slyly humorous feast for the mind and eye and once again proves to be affectingly relevant.
