“Whatever Cheek by Jowl does next constitutes a major happening…”
International theatre director Declan Donnellan discusses his new Franco-British production of Périclès, Prince de Tyr, performing at the Barbican (6 – 21 April).
Following Donnellan’s performances of Le Cid and As You Like It at the Bouffes du Nord theatre in Paris, Peter Brook invited him to form a company of French actors to stage Andromaque by Racine in 2007.The performance was subsequently invited to festivals across Europe.
In 2013, this same ensemble of actors went on to perform Ubu Roi in theatres and festivals around the world. Joined by three new company members, this season the company now performs Shakespeare’s Périclès, Prince de Tyr in French throughout Europe.
Discussion chaired by Assistant Director Marcus Roche.
