Night Just Before The Forests (La Nuit Juste Avant Les Forêts)
By Bernard–Marie Koltès
Translated from the French by Sinéad Rushe
Director Sinéad Rushe
Sound Designer Niels Lanz

Performed by students from BA (Hons) Acting CDT, working alongside BA (Hons) Theatre Practice students


Bernard-Marie Koltès (1948-1989) was the greatest French playwright of his generation, and Night is one of his most captivating and unsettling texts. The story of an isolated young immigrant in a hostile city, Koltès said he wrote it like a musical composition, whose motifs and variations evoke a profound sense of restless yearning and disorientation. This path breaking production in a new translation reimagines the original monologue as a polyphonic work for five performers of different nationalities and genders, a chorus of fragmented parts that resonate with each other in harmony and dissonance.
