Italy, 1968. The members of the affluent family of an authoritarian Milanese industrialist hopelessly fall into a spiral of lust, sexual awakening and mystical turmoil as a charismatic stranger comes to stay…
Based on the writings by the late Italian poet, activist and intellectual, Pier Paolo Pasolini and his film Teorema, this new production is an emotionally charged flow of stunning tableaux. Unraveling with the dreamlike pace of an intricate mystery, the play follows the inner journeys of five characters from a life of bourgeois hypocrisy and emotional emptiness to an extreme of perdition and higher awareness.
TR Warszawa returns to the Barbican with TEOREMAT after the success of 4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane in March 2010.
