THEATRE : The valley of Astonishment. Well done Mr. Peter Brook!

At 89 years old, Peter Brook has this exceptional and never-surpassed sense of staging.
In The valley of Astonishment, he explore memory again, and more specifically a new neurological curiosity called synesthesia. Some synesthesists, like Solomon Shereshevsky, associate images to figures and names, thus creating outstanding memory capacity. That’s what the play’s main character does. Others, like painter Kandinsky, paint the sounds they hear. Another source of inspiration for Brook.
A fabulous and highly instructive theatre experience.
