De Bertolt Brecht dans une traduction de John Willett


Résumé: Galileo Galilei: father, hero, heretic. When a chance discovery leads to evidence of a seismic shift in scientific thinking, Galileo sparks a dangerous dispute with authority. To challenge the idea that the earth is the centre of the universe is to challenge the all-powerful Roman Catholic Church. Brecht's dramatisation of the battle between belief and reason considers whether proof matters when it inspires dissent.

Commentaires : BAFTA Award-winning film director Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride and Prejudice) returns to the Young Vic after his celebrated production of A Season in the Congo.

Brendan Cowell plays Galileo following his acclaimed performance in Yerma. Galileo makes an explosive discovery about the universe with his new invention – the telescope.

Performed in-the-round on a stunning set designed by Lizzie Clachan (Yerma, A Season in the Congo), the show features original music by The Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands and projections by 59 Productions (Feast, War Horse).
