To this day, Marquis de Sade remains the most dark and mysterious writer and philosopher of them all. His life, packed with adventures, gallant love affairs and scandals, did not differ from other aristocrats of his era. But the years he spent languishing in the prisons of various regimes, and the works he wrote there, made him both famous and infamous.
An encyclopaedia of the endless combinations of human nature, sexuality and perversion, the black - and probably enrepeatable - book "The 100 Days of Sodom" is regarded as a sinful, dangerous, hellish novel that deserves to be kept under wraps.
This perverted puppet play - with live actors and the marionettes they breathe life into - invites the audience on a dark and cruel adventure. It portrays various scenes from de Sade's life and his final novel, allowing us to glimpse right down into the depths of the thoughts, burning passions and demons of a being who longed for spiritual ans physical freedom. The play demands boldness, courage and unprejudiced curiosity from cast and audience alike.
