'Destruction never approaches weapon in hand. It comes slyly, on tiptoe, making you see bad in good and good in bad.' The devastation of war is tearing the Bharata family apart. The new king must unravel a mystery: how can he live with himself in the face of the devastation and massacres that he has caused. In Battlefield, the internationally renowned team of Peter Brook, Marie Ha la ne Estienne and Jean Claude Carria re revisit the great Indian epic The Mahabharata, thirty years after Brook's legendary production took world theatre by storm. An immense canvas in miniature, this central section of the ancient text is timeless and contemporary, asking how we can find inner peace in a world riven with conflict. It was first performed at Tha a tre des Bouffes du Nord, Paris, in 2015, before an international tour including a run at the Young Vic Theatre, London, in 2016. 'Peter Brook's return to The Mahabharata is breathtaking a dazzling piece of theatre' - Guardian 'An hour of magic realism... it has a gentle power that lingers' - The Times 'Delivered with remarkable grace and deceptive lightness of touch' - Financial Times 'Luminous and potent' - Independent 'Combines the immediacy of story telling with the purity of Greek tragedy' - Sunday Express 'Something profound is felt on the pulse here... Peter Brook achieves rare magic, and with the slenderest art' - Telegraph
