ED2012 Theatre Review: Caesarean Section – Essays On Suicide (Teatr Zar)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

Don’t be fooled by the title; Caesarean Section – ‘Essays On Suicide’ may be about what brings people to the edge, but more importantly it is about what brings them back from it. With stunning Corsican music, and brilliant dances, ‘Essays…’ almost feels like physical theatre, but it most certainly tells its story well. With a wonderfully simple set including a deep line of broken glass in the middle and a clever use of red wine, ‘Essays…’ even manages to find moments of humour as well as overpowering intensity. I will admit, it will take a better mind than mine to capture the essence of what Teatr Zar have achieved, but whatever it was, it was inspiring and beautiful.

Summerhall, 9-20 Aug (not 14), 7.00pm.
