Marc Dutroux- For more than twenty years he’sbeen sitting in prison, but even today his case represents one of the longestlasting crises of the Belgian police and justice system. He kidnapped severalchildren, abused them and murdered them, and yet was able to get away with itfor years. In Milo Rau’s “Five Easy Pieces”, seven children confront theaudience with his crimes and their consequences. Spellbound, you hold yourbreath as they casually and precisely articulate the apparently unutterable.They slip into all the roles – the criminal and the victims – and create theirown image of reality on the white screen. Scene by scene, they, the potentialvictims, stage the appropriation of a case where children themselves never hada say. Itchallenges us, is hard to watch and yet is strangely liberating andlight at the same time. Can theatre be a space for cathartic mourning?“FiveEasy Pieces” is the name of Stravinsky’s piano exercises for children. WithMilo Rau, it’s five exercises in the courage of looking the dark side ofhumanity in the eye. Led by the hand by seven children.
