Molière suffered a violent haemorrhage while playing the role of the ‹Imaginary Invalid› on 17 February 1673. What did the greatest theatre-maker of his time experience at the moment of his death? Now, 350 years later, Antú Romero Nunes recreates the last long seconds of Molière's life as a fatal revue. Chilean playwright Nona Fernández has written a play for the Basel company based on archetypes from Molière's life and comedies: The masters – stingy, sick and salacious. The servants – imaginative, industrious and ill-treated. The ups and downs of a troupe of actors between intrigue and success, acceptance and refusal, triumph and defeat.
Shortly before the premiere, during the final rehearsals, we invite you to take a exclusive look behind the scenes. During an initial introduction you will get to know the artistic team and learn more about the production, inspiration and staging. Afterwards you will witness a stage rehearsal.
