Theatre director, Peter Brook who has many accolades to his name, especially the nine-hour version of Mahabharata bid adieu to the world at 97

Visionary British Theatre Personality, Peter Brook Passes Away At 97

Peter Brook passed away at the age of 97. He was one of the most significant theatre directors of the 20th century. He reinvented the form by stripping it down to its most abecedarian and potent factors. The director was recognised as the topmost of our time because of the wide breadth of his work.
Brook worked and challenged the cult far into his 90s. He lived in Paris from the early 1970s and is most known for his nine-hour epic” The Mahabharata,” which he created in 1985. There, he innovated the International Centre for Theatre Research in a major music hall known as the Bouffes du Nord.

Brook made his professional commanding debut at the age of just 17. He was a unique gift from the morning. He charmed the cult in London and New York with his Tony-winning, period-defining” Marat/ Sade” in 1964, and three times later, he wrote” The Empty Space,” one of the most important books on theatre ever. A generation of youthful actors who would produce the borderline and indispensable theatre scenes espoused its opening lines as their own. He wrote,” I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage.”
