Direct from Festival OFF d’Avignon and L’athénée Théâtre Louis–Jouvet Paris, Wendy Beckett’s critically acclaimed CLAUDEL is a thrilling combination of narrative, dance, sculpture and music, reimagining the story of one of the world’s greatest and most misunderstood artists, Camille Claudel.
Written and directed by acclaimed playwright Wendy Beckett and choreographed by the internationally celebrated Meryl Tankard, CLAUDEL explores the life of the highly talented and rebellious young sculptor and her complex relationship with legendary artist, Auguste Rodin.
Set in 1880s Paris, this haunting drama unflinchingly questions the notions of genius versus madness and the consequences for those who chose lives that are deemed too different for society to tolerate.
Originally Presented by Pascal Productions for Festival OFF d’Avignon and L’athénée Théâtre Louis–Jouvet Paris
