Christophe Sermet has adapted a novel by Hugo Claus, filled with foolish love, disrespect and death wishes. Dernier lit tells the story of a self-chosen and programmed death. This short story stands for Claus’ world, but told in a nutshell. It is the story of a passion that can’t find its place in society and is pushed out. A strong theatrical concentration of sharp feelings and death wish.
It is already ten years since one of the leading, if not the single most important, post-war Belgian authors, died. On 19 March 2008, Hugo Claus, who had long suffered from Alzheimer's disease, opted for euthanasia. Precisely ten years after his death, we pay tribute with two productions.
