Ordet de Kaj Munk


In Danishwriter Kaj Munk’s play Ordet, famously adapted to the screen by Carl Dreyer in 1925, two rival families are faced with the
death and miraculous resurrection of a woman. In this first staging of Ordet in France, director Arthur Nauzyciel strips the play of
its historical implications to highlight the spiritual strife. Set in a claire-obscure, geometrical decor, it presents us with a powerful
allegory ofman’s despair in the face of nothingness.
