· Caligula
· 2018
· Play written by Albert Camus, directed by Alain Pochet

· This take on Albert Camus’ play Caligula takes place in an undefined time that doesn’t set the play in any specific period. It results in a contemporary interpretation which can remind the spectator of their own time. As a symbol of democracy, the amphitheatre brings the spectator back to ancient Rome, but it is constantly overthrown by Caligula’s mad behaviour. The differences in heights and distances created by the stairs help represent the many demonstrations of power and relationships.
