Théâtre National de Luxembourg  presents

Why?

The famous director, Peter Brook, and his longtime partner, Marei-Hélène Estienne, present a new work musing the ultimate questions of existence.  

A poignant reflection created by a theatrical master mind as his career comes to a close, Why? is an extraordinary introspective opus by a relentless artist and visionary. In it he asks: Why theater? What’s it for? What is it about? Brook, who has been based in France since the 1970s, has revolutionized the performing arts around the world for multiple generations of artists through his work and writings.

Theatre is a very dangerous weapon. - These words have been written in the 1920s by one of the most innovative directors the theatre has known, V. E. Meyerhold. He saw all the menacing dangers theatre and art were going through in the 30s in Russia. Until the very last minute, he hoped that the revolution could win, and paid for this with his life.

Running time: Unknown.   Tickets: €25. To book: luxembourgticket.lu, tickets@luxembourgticket.lu or call 47 08 95 1.

Similar to the Showtime 1 & 2 productions, an evening filled with the best moments from various well-known musicals performed by a large wind orchestra, a chorus and solo singers, as well as dancers. The selection contains songs with various themes, from sad and serious to funny and joyful, ensuring that there is a good mix of different emotions and experiences throughout the show.

Some songs or medleys will be played instrumentally just by the orchestra, to feature the full palette of great sounds it can produce, some songs will have soloists performing them in accurate costume with props and a projected backdrop, some songs will feature 8 to 10 dancers, and some songs will have a chorus with or without soloists. This provides a good mix of different art forms combined to one colourful show.

TNL, The Open House

Théâtre National de Luxembourg  presents

The Open House

Father and Mother have united Daughter, Son and Uncle around them in their living room in order to celebrate their wedding anniversary. From behind a newspaper and out of the protection of his restraining wheelchair, Father keeps lashing away at his offspring and brother with cynical meanness and dark, deadpan remarks. Numbed by habit, the family dismisses these attacks with dismal resignation, every now and then preparing a counter-offensive before realising such a project‘s utter waste of energy.

The family dog’s vanishing sets in motion a series of disappearances leaving Father remain immured in his wheelchair whilst the familiar decor around him changes – the human punching bags, which used to surround him and which he’s relied on for survival, are eventually removed, leaving him more and more disoriented and crumbling.

Anne Simon is directing this short play by Will Eno.  Eno is a playwright who constantly explores that fine borderline between truth and fiction.  'The Open House' won the 2014 Obie Award, the Lortel Award for Outstanding Play and a Desk Drama Award.

Running time: Unknown.  Tickets: €20. To book: luxembourgticket.lu, tickets@luxembourgticket.lu or call 47 08 95 1.
