About this show

Inspired by Choderlos de Laclos's novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, German playwright Heiner Müller's (1929-1995) play Quartett is the basis for this visually stylized yet visceral production from director Robert Wilson. In this quintessentially Wilsonian war of the sexes, Müller's text (only twelve pages in the original) is expanded into a stately danced prologue and eight scenes featuring the director's signature spare, stunning tableaux, which turn every calculated movement into a gorgeous and provocative revelation of character.
