Measure for Measure from Cheek by Jowl and Pushkin Theater
Georges Bigot + Theatre Y

Georges Bigot–central to Ariane Mnouchkine’s Theatre du Soleil during the ’80s and ’90s and one of France’s most lauded contemporary actors–comes to Chicago to collaborate for a full year with Theatre Y, one of Chicago’s "bravest and most uniquely intriguing theater companies" (Chicago Stage Review). Known all over the world for highly physical ensemble work, Bigot’s style reads like a "mask in human form that, when turned towards an audience, hits you like a punch in the stomach" (Olivier Berardi). Bigot hunts for the paradox that animates the nightmare of Macbeth.
