Description

Delightfully deranged and beautifully berserk, Ukrainian group Misanthrope Theatre re-ignite the flames of rebellion and fervour that saw Alfred Jarry’s play close upon its opening in Paris, 1896. In this modern interpretation of Jarry’s Macbeth parody, performers unmask and leave bare ideas of ambition, power and sexuality. A thrilling synthesis of sound, superbly executed physicality and radical drama abounds. Find yourself caught in the crossfire of violently farcical dialogue as a cast of eight captivating actors transport you to a world of zygotic Dada and gory surrealism!

We are great fans of Ubu Roi (Ubu the King) and Dada and Surrealism in general. This production is a marvelous interpretation and modernisation of the Alfred Jarry play. The music, dancing and acting are wonderful and definitely Fringe-worthy! Alfred Jarry would approve!
