France/Italy | 2012 | col | dir. Simon Brook, with Peter Brook | doc

‘How does one make theatre real? It is so easy to fall into tragedy or comedy. What is important above all is to be on this strict razor edge of the tightrope…’ Peter Brook raises the curtain and allows his son Simon Brook to film behind the scenes and to reveal the secrets of his approach. This unique and personal film takes us beyond the intimacy of a workshop, into a philosophical experience.

Followed by a Q&A with Alexander Zeldin, former assistant to Peter Brook, author and director (Beyond Caring at the National Theatre) and now Associate Director at the Birmingham Rep.
