NEW WORK - OUTDOOR
Translation and adaptation of 'Our Mutual Friend' (1865) written by Charles Dickens (England, 1812-1870).
A whodunit where no one is who they say they are. Charles Dickens is eccentric, furious in his social commitment, harsh and exceptionally humorous.
Premiere: july 2017, Antwerp
Have a guess. Which is the odd one out?
Rubbish dumps and a misty river.
Money and violence.
Suspicion and madness.
Love and passion.
The textThe remarkably generous wealth of dialogues in this, Charles Dickens’ final novel, is enhanced by prose that outlines the characters and their motivations. The descriptions of places are miniature literary gems that carry us from one location to the next.
On the eve of the capitalist era Dickens writes a very hard criticism of what money does to us.
All the ingredients for a new challenge are to be found here: the pleasure of performing the piece, the dramaturgical puzzling, the emotional depth and the moving statement implicit in the content.By adapting Our Mutual Friend, Comp.Marius confirms that literature (dramatic and otherwise) remains the lifeblood of its work.
