Are there “real” tears in the theatre, as Godard wondered if there could be a “real” kiss in a movie? Milo Rau’s Vers un réalisme global is based on this age-old, unresolvable tension between art and reality.
This book brings together lectures and interviews from 2013, the Manifesto of Ghent, an essay by Johannes Birgfeld entitled ‘Milo Rau’s Theatre of Revolution’ and a chapter on what NTGent will become after the pandemic. It offers a wide-ranging immersion in his artistic work and his thoughts on theatre.
