Mary said what she said

Théâtre de la Ville / Robert Wilson

Twee theatergrootheden herschrijven geschiedenis.

De Amerikaanse pionier van het multimediatheater Robert Wilson is een van de invloedrijkste regisseurs en beeldend kunstenaars van deze tijd. Hij beleefde zijn grote doorbraak met inventieve, monumentale collages van theater, video en geluid als Einstein on the Beach (1976), een multimedia-opera met muziek van Philip Glass, en werkte samen met (onder vele anderen) Tom Waits, Heiner Müller, Laurie Anderson, William Burroughs en Lou Reed.

Nu maakt Wilson een voorstelling met Isabelle Huppert, zonder twijfel een van de beste film- en theateractrices ter wereld. Ze schreef zo’n beetje alle grote filmprijzen op haar naam, waaronder de Golden Globe en de César voor haar rol in Paul Verhoevens Elle.

Wilson en Huppert maken een stuk over de Schotse koningin Mary, een vrouw die tot de laatste snik vocht om haar eigen lot te bepalen. Daarmee schreef ze haar eigen geschiedenis.

Mary Said What She Said speelt zich af in 1587, op de avond van haar executie. De katholieke Mary is door de protestantse koningin Elizabeth ter dood veroordeeld. Mary kijkt terug op haar stormachtige leven, haar rampzalige huwelijken en negentien jaren in gevangenschap. Ze blijft zich verzetten tegen haar lot. Zelfs in het aangezicht van de dood weigert ze te zwijgen en haar idealen op te geven. Het verhaal gaat dat haar lippen nog bleven doorpraten toen de beul haar afgehakte hoofd omhoog hield.
