Comp. Marius
Open air romantic drama with a flemish touch

After performing their complete Pagnol series at Les Tombées de la Nuit, the Antwerp-based company of Waas Gramser and Kris Van Trier returns with an adaptation of this emblematic 19th-century romantic drama. Combining the text of Alfred de Musset and George Sand that inspired the play (Une conspiration en 1537), the Marius company tweaks, redistributes and tightens the situations for an open-air Lorenzaccio with five actors on an empty stage. In this play, which focuses on the possibility of revealing the truth of beings through beauty and humour, Renaissance Florence is transformed into a delightful universal fable.


> Comp. MARIUS (Belgium)

As theatre makers since 1991, with the Tg Stan (1991-1993), Maten (1994-1996) and De Onderneming (1997-2005) companies, Waas Gramser and Kris Van Trier founded the Marius company in Antwerp around their discovery of Marcel Pagnol’s plays and the staging of Marius (1999). These actors, translators, adapters and directors, who are friends in life as well as on stage and specialise in outdoor performances, are working on the complete works of Marcel Pagnol and classical plays (Beckett, Bernhard, Beaumarchais, Dickens, etc.) The company is committed to actors’ autonomy and minimalist staging tools. It has developed mobile wooden bleachers with 240 seats and ends each performance with a friendly meal with the audience. In 2023, the company is touring with Arthur Schnitzler’s Anatole, Thomas Bernhard’s Sitdown Comedy #2, Jacques Prévert’s Les enfants du paradis, Jean Anouilh’s Léodacia and Alfred de Musset’s Lorenzaccio.
