The Great He-Goat

Compagnie Mossoux-Bonté

Creation 2019

1 hour 20 minutes


Ten museum guards, stuck at night inside the exhibition rooms, get phagocytised by the paintings by Goya they stand alongside all day. As their reference points are slowly slipping away, their bond to reality takes on absurd forms. Ravings, phantasmagorias, deaf manipulations, fits and outbursts, they spew out from the shadows a form of illegitimate humour, their only strength in the announced debacle.

Haunted by the Black Paintings, this production denounces the blind violence and the poisoning of the minds that have been a curse throughout History.
