Grim play comes to Changzhou
Font:〖L M S

The 100th performance of Five Easy Pieces will be shown in Beijing on Saturday, as part of the Theatertreffen in China 2018, with two more performances in Changzhou on July 11 and 12.

Five Easy Pieces, by Swiss theater director Milo Rau and his International Institute of Political Murder, is the grim tale of Belgian child murderer and pedophile, Marc Dutroux, controversially performed with children between the ages of 8 and 14-and listed as one of the 10 "most remarkable productions" at renowned German-language theater festival, Theatertreffen, in 2017.

Theatertreffen is an annual, two-week festival in Berlin that takes place in May and reflects the highest level of contemporary theater.

In 2015, Wu Promotion signed a five-year agreement with Thomas Oberender, director of the Berliner Festspiele, paving the way for the Berlin Theatertreffen to present shows in China from 2016 to 2020.

Each year, a jury of theater experts from China and Germany will select some productions from the 10 performances staged in Berlin to be presented in China. This year, at the 3rd Theatertreffen in China, one of those will be Five Easy Pieces. The play, based on testimonies and reconstructions of actual events, mercilessly breaks through the taboos of our age, as Rau uses the biography of Belgium's most notorious criminal to sketch a brief history of the country and to reflect on the representation of human feelings on the stage.
