05 – 27 Feb
11 and 12: Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord

Directed by Peter Brook, this new play, which comes to the Barbican as part of an international tour, explores an extraordinary conflict in West Africa under French occupation. It shows how a dispute over whether a certain prayer should be recited 11 or 12 times leads inexorably to hatred and massacres.

The question of violence and the true place of tolerance make this epic story more than ever relevant today. Adapted from the works of Amadou Hampaté Bâ by Marie-Hélène Estienne and Peter Brook.

Time: 2.30 and 7.45pm
Address: Barbican, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DS
