Erin Doherty from the Netflix series
Through the story of how Tartuffe, disguised as a faithful priest, breaks the family of the bourgeois Orgon, who believed in him, the work criticizes the hypocrisy of the religious of the time and at the same time launches a severe warning against the blind faith that makes people intolerant and stupid. Delicate music by Alexandre Desplat, the master of film music, adds to the chilling tension, while stage and lighting by Jan Persvejfeld and costumes by Anne Dhewes complete the captivating staging.
Ike kept the setting of the original work, which dealt with an anti-Semitic incident surrounding a Jewish hospital director, but moved the background to the present day and changed the main character’s doctor to a woman. . The work begins with a confrontation between a priest who tries to anoint a girl who is dying from the consequences of an abortion and a doctor who obstructs him to keep the principle. The debates of those who represent religion and science extend to gender, ethnicity, race and class conflicts, and take a deep look at the human dignity that must be protected even in a society where hatred is endemic. The breathtaking performance of Jani Hoslinga, who plays the main character, Ruud Wolf, will be screened three times on February 26, March 2 and March 4.
