RELATIONSHIP TROUBLES
CATHERINE HIEGEL AND DIDIER BEZACE IN THE ASCERBIC AND MOCKING WRITING OF KOLTÈS


Returning to Algeria at the moment when the country became independent, Mathilde arrives at her factory-owner brother’s house. Bernard-Marie Koltès is having a field day with this sharp and sardonic portrait of the bourgeoisie that lifts the curtain on its colonial past, repressing all forms of guilt, staking claim to a clear conscience like a family asset, the same title as the factory, the name, the house. Owing to the fact that he’s connected to Algeria, where he spent many holidays, Arnaud Meunier is particularly attached to this piece turns a spotlight on “our troubled relationships with our former land” as well as “our relationship with others, foreigners, immigration”. It’s time for this to be heard again, driven by a troupe reunited around Catherine Hiegel and Didier Bezace.
