CLAUDEL

Set in Paris in 1888 CLAUDEL is a play combining dance, classical music and narrative. Camille Claudel is a young sculptor who works as Rodin’s student. Unconventional and rebellious her family have her confined to a mental institution. Regardless Claudel is to become one of the most exciting sculptors of her generation.

Dance is the essential element in this beautifully choreographed landscape of art and sculpture. The music is reminiscent of Debussy. This haunting drama of tragedy and aesthetics is a triumph of the human spirit over adversity.

CLAUDEL is also available in French.
