The esteemed Parisian theater company presents a legendary production! Director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota has reunited his remarkable 2004 cast of actors for encore performances of Eugène Ionesco’s masterpiece of the absurd, Rhinocéros. When first presented in Paris, critics were ecstatic. “A masterpiece,” raved Le Monde. “A veritable tour de force on the part of the director… [and] a magical embrace between the show and the spectator.” In Rhinocéros, a lone hero watches his friends turn into rhinoceroses one by one until he alone stands unchanged. With a marvelous sense of dark, subversive humor, Ionesco expresses his horror of ideological conformism, inspired by the rise of the fascist state in 1930s Romania.
In French with English supertitles.
