With the complicity of Irina Brook, the Miranda theatre company reinvents this classic masterpiece, accentuating its burlesque side. With their white-painted faces, red noses and tail-coats, the actors lead us from one extreme to another in this tragicomedy, taking us from laughter to tears.
Dom Juan, nihilistic seducer, defends his idea of freedom whilst being pursued by the over-the-top Dona Elvire who is touchingly laughable in her desperation. Sganarelle, faithful manservant, a reasoning man and a thinker, becomes a likeable clown who safeguards the humanity of the play. Totally indifferent to the concept of conforming, the clowns push boundaries and take nothing seriously, not even life or death.
A superbly performed slapstick farce …. To be viewed without moderation. La Provence
Workshops taking place during the festival linked to the show ran by the Miranda theatre company.
