Bernard-Marie Koltès (1948-1989) was the greatest French playwright of his generation, and Night is one of his most captivating and unsettling texts. The story of an isolated young immigrant in a hostile city, Koltès said he wrote it like a musical composition, whose motifs and variations evoke a profound sense of restless yearning and disorientation. This path breaking production in a new translation reimagines the original monologue as a polyphonic work for five performers of different nationalities and genders, a chorus of fragmented parts that resonate with each other in harmony and dissonance.

Please note that this performance will contain some restricted views.
