The Damned

18th July

The Damned
Directed by Ivo Van Hove
And Comédie- Française

@ Park Avenue Armory, NY

From earlier production but 100% agree!
 “A masterstroke…a dangerous, vast and virtuoso production that confronts its time and context with chilling force, showing, in the director’s own words, ‘a celebration of evil’.
The Guardian (UK)

Great use of live and recorded footage.
