Mudam’s Great Hall will host the seminal play Art (1994) by Yasmina Reza (b. 1959, Paris) in a new production directed by the Luxembourgish director Frank Hoffmann (b. 1954, Luxembourg). The project is produced in collaboration with Schauspiel Leipzig and Théâtre National du Luxembourg.

The play depicts a cross-section of the daily lives of three friends embroiled in a heated conversation about a modern work of art ­– central to the piece is the familiar question, “what is art?”.
