Description

The Rage originates from the eponymous play by Elfriede Jelinke, the 2004 Nobel laureate, who began to write it after the massacre at Charlie Hebdo in Paris. Rage, the theme of the work, in the piece directed by Kleczewska – who stages the clash between victims and assassins, overwhelmed by blind rage in a television studio – becomes a high-intensity performance in which the genres are blurred in a theatre that is both experimental and political, and does not shy away from dealing with current events.
