History of Violence
This November, director Thomas Ostermeier and Schaubuhne Berlin return to St. Ann's Warehouse with Edouard Louis' stunning autobiographical memoir History of Violence. Through the fractured recall of Édouard, his sister, police, and doctors, the "brave and ambitious" (The Guardian) book and play reconstruct the trauma of a desire-filled encounter turned violent. A layered retelling that is both devastating and funny, the production uncovers deeply rooted societal racism, homophobia, and rage unbridled under obscure, repressive power structures until all that remains is a nuanced, closely guarded memory.
Schedule varies. Check official web site for most up-to-date information.
