The Stage (UK): The Stage Awards 2020 shortlist: International award (including Milo Rau)

Milo Rau | 12 December 2019
"Swiss director Milo Rau has been described as the darling of European theatre, its enfant terrible, a radical, a maverick, and the most controversial theatremaker working today.UK audiences got a proper look at this extraordinary creative’s work for themselves as he brought La Reprise: Histoire(s) du Theatre (I) to the Royal Lyceum as part of the Edinburgh International Festival 2019.Presented by NT Gent, the Belgian theatre Rau runs, the show was about a homophobic killing in Liège that questioned audiences’ attitudes to violence. The Stage hailed it as “extraordinarily powerful” and “deeply uncomfortable”. Michael Billington said it was the kind of show “that justifies an international festival”."
