Yasmina Reza, "KUNST" (Art)
"KUNST" (Art). Yasmina Reza / Frank Hoffmann

Mudam hosts Théâtre National du Luxembourg

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 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?”.

Yasmine Reza
Yasmina Reza, (b. 1959, Paris) is a multi-award-winning French playwright, novelist and memoirist. Her work has been translated into more than thirty languages and been produced worldwide and has achieved both critical praise and popular international success.

Frank Hoffmann
