Clear and laughing look, soft voice with this

so British accent,

Brook is one of the giants of the world theater.

Settled in France in the 70s, he never ceased to summon the world to the stage.

In 1971, he created the Center international de Recherche Théâtrale in Paris to, he said, learn from others and get out of our small, arrogant and closed Western culture.


Peter Brook, there are dozens of shows and some legendary pieces, including the Mahabarata in 1985 at the Avignon Festival in the open air, in the Carrière Boulbon.

Nine hours of show to tell this Indian legend adapted by Jean-Claude Carrière.
