Description

Birmingham Repertory Theatre, in association with Brighton Dome & Festival, Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg and Holland Festival presents The String Quartet's Guide To Sex And Anxiety.

 

The tempestuous relationship between sex, anxiety and music comes to a head in the remarkable new production from one of Europe's most exciting theatre directors, Calixto Bieito.

Music and drama collide as the award-winning string powerhouse The Heath Quartet performs alongside an equally stunning quartet of actors to deliver an unmissable montage of melody and madness.

Drawing inspiration from the writing of Byung-Chul Han (The Burnout Society) and Robert Burton's The Anatomy of Melancholy, this innovative new production will explore the effects of the 21st Century on our mental wellbeing, particularly in a very fast-moving digital world.

Music

Beethoven String Quartet No.11, opus 95
