After the novel by Michel Houellebecq
Staging: Johan Simons

When a new president is elected in France, the well-organ- ised life of the ageing professor of literature François
is turned upside down: as of now, a charismatic Moslem is at the head of a soon-to-be Muslim France. After his highly praised production of Atomised, Johan Simons returns to Michel Houellebecq: this sinister and satirical vision of the future is a melancholic provocation.

The first production of Unterwerfung was created in 2017 in cooperation between NTGent and Action Zoo Humain and Chokri Ben Chikha.
