    La bonne âme du Se-Tchouan (The Good Person of Szechwan)

    An ambitious musical theatre performance, at the crossroads between a Berlin cabaret and an exuberant imaginary China.

    NAC Theatre

    In an isolated Chinese province, the gods take shelter at the home of the prostitute Shen Te. They reward her generosity by giving her enough money to open her own tobacco shop, but the young woman soon falls prey to others’ greed and dishonesty. To ward off disaster and reclaim her authority, she disguises herself as a man.

    By ending her life at 36, Nelly Arcan cut short an existence as provocative as it was public. From her writings, with their recurring themes of suffering, the cosmos, death and female identity, Marie Brassard has extracted seven spellbinding monologues. This unforgettable show comes to the NAC at last.
