Description - Complicite Plays by Theatre de Complicite
The "Street of Crocodiles" is inspired by the life and stories of Polish writer Bruno Schulz (1892-1942). The play creates a vision of provincial Poland in the early part of the century as a restless ocean of unending flux. The "Three Lives of Lucie Cabrol" is adapted from John Berger's short story. The story becomes an unsentimental evocation of peasant life, a hymn to the tenacity of love and a Brechtian fable about the world's unfairness. In "Mnemonic" an ice-preserved body - from 5,200 years ago - forms the central image of Theatre de Complicite's meditation on memory and morality.
