Introduction to the play by Janine Goedert 30 minutes before every performance (EN).

Based on the novel by Olga Tokarczuk
Cycle « Vivre ensemble »

The world-renowned international touring company, Complicité, returns to Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg with a brand-new production based on Nobel Prize laureate Olga Tokarczuk’s novel.

“Olga Tokarczuk has created an extraordinary world that speaks to my deepest sense of the continuity between humankind and nature – a world where, like a mycelium web, all entities are connected deeply at the roots, unable to exist alone. Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead is a tale about the cosmos, poetry, and the limitations and possibilities of activism. Tokarczuk is a prophet for our times who understands us in all our hilarity, messiness, cruelty and animalism, and it is a great privilege to bring to the stage what is surely one of literature's most urgent accounts of being alive today.” Complicité Artistic Director, Simon McBurney

The company was last seen in Luxembourg with their hit production The Master and Margarita in 2011.

“A new Complicité show isn't just a devised play: it's a theatrical event. At the company's inimitable best, it is a ticket to another world.”

Time Out on The Master and Margarita
“…one of the most fully-immersive theatre pieces ever created…”
