Where: Chevron Auditorium, International House, UC Berkeley

Renowned French playwright, screenwriter, author, actor and raconteur par excellence Jean-Claude Carrière spent eleven years in India, tracing the Mahabaharata’s roots in civilization, geography and its relevance in modern India. His nine-hour magnum opus, The Mahabharata, opened in 1985 under the stellar direction of his lifetime collaborator Peter Brook and an international cast, and quickly became a watershed moment in theatrical history across the Western world. Jean-Claude Carriére gives Bay Area audiences a simple but powerful one-man rendition of the story of Mahabharata, in the style of the old wandering minstrels of India.
