Monolingual Brits will inevitably miss some of Teatr Ecce Homo’s captivating ensemble sequences while reading the (frequently frozen) surtitles, in this adaptation of Nobel Prize-winner Alexsandr Solzhenitsyn’s Cancer Ward. Fluid movement work grants the terminally ill characters – played by a largely teenage cast – a kind of dignified grace, as they come to terms with their conditions through denial, philosophy or love. Uplifting and heartbreaking.
