About this show

Seven children present the true story of notorious Belgian serial killer Marc Dutroux. Don't miss the only the North American performances of this international sensation from director Milo Rau.

Five Easy Pieces probes the limits of what children know, feel, and do. Swiss director Milo Rau and his International Institute of Political Murder (IIPM) explore aesthetic and theatrical questions that blend together with moral issues: How can children understand the significance of narrative, empathy, loss, subjection, old age, disappointment, or rebellion? How do we react if we see them acting out scenes of violence or love and romance? What does that say about our own fears and desires?

Milo Rau's "taboo-testing productions led one publication to call him 'the world's most controversial director.'" — New York Times

Performed in Flemish with English supertitles. Recommended for ages 16 & up.

Created with CAMPO Arts Centre, Ghent.
