CLAUDEL
 

CLAUDEL is a thrilling reimagining of the story of one of the world’s greatest and most misunderstood sculptors, Camille Claudel and her complex relationship with legendary artist, Auguste Rodin.

In an exclusive Australian premiere, from 23 April at The Playhouse, Sydney Opera House, CLAUDEL is a combination of narrative, dance, sculpture and music.

Written and directed by acclaimed playwright Wendy Beckett and Choreographed by the internationally celebrated Meryl Tankard, CLAUDEL explores the life of the highly talented and rebellious young sculptor Camille Claudel. Set in 1880s Paris, this haunting drama unflinchingly questions the notions of genius versus madness and the consequences for those who chose lives that are deemed too different for society to tolerate.
