People With Down Syndrome Exploited for Stage Version of Marquis de Sade’s The 120 Days of Sodom

Once I thought the race for the absolute bottom ended with Miley Cyrus. But moonbats always manage to dig down to new cultural lows:

Swiss theatre director Milo Rau, 40, is no stranger to scandals surrounding his productions.

Once described by a German weekly as ‘the most controversial theatre director of his generation’, Rau once used children to re-enact the horrific crimes of Belgian paedophile and murderer Marc Dutroux in his play ‘Five Easy Pieces’.

In his latest scandalous offering called ‘The 120 Days of Sodom’, Rau once again tests the boundaries of what is acceptable in society.

The play is based on the lengthy novel of the same name by the infamous mad marquis.

It tells the story of four wealthy male libertines who lock themselves up in a castle with a harem of 46 victims, which, after gruesome sex acts, ends in slaughter. Sade described his work as ‘the most impure tale that has ever been told since the world began.’

Nonetheless, Rau manages to raise the depravity ante.

In the play, the actors with Down’s Syndrome can be seen being beaten like dogs, humiliated, tortured and even forced to mimic eating excrement while being crucified, according to local media.

The actors don’t play people with Down syndrome; they actually have it.

Within a year or two we will be presented with a children’s book inspired by the Marquis de Sade, illustrated with graphic photographs. Critics will praise it for being cutting edge. Even afterward, the cultural gatekeepers will egg on sick artists to dig for new lows.

The state of the art of cultural decay.
