Shakespeare as you've never seen him before, stripped, dismembered, dismembered... Ten tragedies reduced to the essential, ten cruel portraits of women, ten stories of intimacy where love, desire, power and hatred intertwine. With its unique signature, practicing a theater where the body and the song have as much place as the text, the Needcompany delivers a total theatrical object that will follow you for a long time. The minimalist scenography and the music of Maarten Seghers underline the loving brutality of the text and the physicality of the play.

This show is based on Shakespeare's plays, the most performed author in history, many of which are almost impossible to stage because of their violence, atrocities, racism and misogyny. Yes, that's how it is in Shakespeare. This centuries-old global burden of violence against women is transformed into a fictionalized version that places women as both sacrificial beings and avenging goddesses. This play leads us to question: What does violence mean in art today? Why do we like to look at it so much? Do we look at violence differently today than in the 16th and 17th centuries?

Jan Lauwers (director): "I'm more and more convinced that we have to find another way of thinking that shows that everyone is against violence. We think that everyone is bad, but that is not true. The majority of people are not violent, there is a great solidarity. If we go back through history - and here I always cross paths with Shakespeare and his tragedies - we might find something there."

Show performed in English, with French surtitles.
