The internationally renowned team of Peter Brook, Marie-Hélène Estienne, and Jean-Claude Carrière revisit the great Indian epic the Mahabharata, 30 years after Brook’s legendary production took world theater by storm.
The Mahabharata is not simply a book, nor a vast series of books, it is an immense canvas covering all the aspects of human existence. “In it,” Peter Brook has said, “we find all the questions of our lives, in a way that is at once contemporary and urgent. Over many thousands of years the Mahabharata shows us, in an always-unexpected way, how to open our eyes to what reality demands.”
