No Way Out (Huis Clos)


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

By Jean-Paul Sartre in an English version by Frank Hauser.

Three strangers. Trapped in a disused bar. No food. No drink. No end⦠No way out.

A man is taken to an empty room. He is joined by two women. Nothing can prepare them for what lies in store. There are no windows or doors â only the faint pulse of distant tango musicâ¦

Fuelled by desire, jealousy and fear, the three captives make uneasy and shifting alliances, using their memories and their sexuality as weapons of power and torment.

Grounded in the blood and sweat of Argentina's brutal Dirty War, director Luke Kernaghan unites a dynamic group of artists and performers to create a bold and breath-taking new look at a beloved classic, intertwined with choreography from Kele Baker(Argentine Tango choreographer for BBC's Strictly Come Dancing).".

Jean-Paul Sartre's violent and unflinching study of cruelty and death is brought vividly to life through a sensual and erotic blend of text, music and movement. Driven by the energy and passion of Argentine Tango, this visceral production grasps you by the hand and leads you through a dangerous yet seductive underworld.
