THEATRE: The Just Assassins by Albert Camus at Théâtre de la Colline

 In Events

La Colline is including two English subtitled perfomances in its production of Albert Camus’ The Just Assassins, directed by French director Stanislas Nordey. Set in Moscow in February 1905, a group of revolutionary terrorists are plotting an assassination attempt on the Tsar’s uncle. But here history matters less than the question clearly posed by Camus, who won the Nobel Prize in 1957: Can a crime perpetrated for political aims be justified? From the Russian revolutionary terrorism of the late 19th century to the post Second World War debate about acts of resistance, up until the current state exploitation of terrorism, the question has remained a pressing one. Nordey deals with The Just Assassins as he would deal with a contemporary text written, actively tuned to the realities of its time.

English subtitled performances on 3rd April at 8.30pm and 20th April at 7.30pm. Tickets available at La Colline, Fnac and Ticketac.
