Roy Hart Theatre at Malérargues
Date: January 2018
Duration: 7 hours 59 minutes
The origin, philosophy and work of Roy Hart Theatre is profound, in particular its research into the extended 'human voice', and it has been the subject of many books and serious disertations. Yet the story of Roy Hart Theatre at Malérargues has been equally dramatic, tragic, comic, touching, thrilling and entertaining as anything they have ever done on stage.
In 1974 forty-seven members of Roy Hart Theatre began their move from the gentile Hampstead suburb of London to a huge bankrupt ruin of a chateau in the south of France, filled with wild ideas and an idealistic passion for theatre and life. You can image what happened - actually, you can't, it's almost unimaginable, you'll just have to listen.
