Sous le Volcan adapted from Malcolm Lowry


Flemish director Guy Cassiers brings to the stage Malcolm Lowry’s cult novel. Set in Mexico on the Day of the Dead in 1938, it tells the story of a British consul’s self-destructive quest for authenticity. Guy Cassiers uses music, video and lighting to accompany the actors’ work in what Malcolm Lowry described as “a drunk Divine Comedy”.
