Ever since Peter Brook produced Marat/Sade in London in 1964, this play has become a reference for companies. In 1968, Adolfo Marsillach directed a version that would mark a before and after in Spanish theatre. The Sa Boira company, backed by 60 shows and 32 years stage experience, is now offering a new proposal of this legendary work within the European theatrical panorama. The fact that the actors of Sa Boira are blind, far from being a problem, it is just another incentive to bring out all the nuances and subtleties contained in the work. Marat/Sade, which takes place in 1808, remembers Charlotte Corday's assassination of Jean Paul Marat; through the play performed by the inmates of the Asylum of Charentona, directed by the Marquis de Sade. This is a workpiece of meta-theatre, theatre within theatre, that draws on Artaud's Theatre Of Cruelty and Grotowski's Poor Theatre, with influences from Bertolt Brecht’s epic theatre.
