The Damned (Les Damnes)

The Damned (Les Damnes)T01224648561
Luchino Visconti's screenplay is the springboard for a ceaselessly creative production, which follows a family of German industrialists - the corrupt and debauched Essenbeck clan. With echoes of Greek and Shakespearean tragedy, their deepening collusion with the nascent Nazi regime puts them on a perilous path to destruction. Invited to direct the illustrious troupe of Comedie-Francaise for the first time, Van Hove and his long-time collaborator Jan Versweyveld populate the Barbican stage with a company of 30 actors and technicians. Archival footage and live recordings projected onto a screen form a counterpoint to the immense and involving action, the roving camera at times turned on audiences.
