Phaedra burns with illicit desire for her stepson. But even in the closest physical proximity, her loved one remains as inaccessible as ever.
Following a lifelong passion for the Greeks, Poland’s great radical director Krzysztof Warlikowski now turns to the mysterious queen and her many incarnations in a wild and explicit reconstruction that places French screen actress Isabelle Huppert at its heart.
This production from Poland and France is part of LIFT 2016.
