“The scream of the cornered animal ”
Four dynamic performers deliver this scorching political firebrand as if in a single voice, a scream—that of author Pierre Lefebvre. A powerful denunciation of the injustice and violence of the established order. A must-see to ignite your sociopolitical awareness!
An abyss separates the citizens from the leaders of this world. Why is it that, in what we call “democracy,” dialogue with decision-makers seems fake? Under the sharp eye of director Benoît Vermeulen, four intrepid actors deliver this radioactive text, not without sometimes being affected themselves, to the point where bodies and voices become distorted. Speaking directly and incisively to “Monsieur,” an all-purpose power figure, they denounce the brutality of a dehumanizing social system where people are obliged to remain silent in order to take their tiny place on the great wheel of commerce.
Both exhilarating in its directness and lacerating in its language, this show accomplishes the essential feat of rendering unto theatre the things are theatre’s, namely, its power as a public forum, and thus its capacity to challenge Caesar by looking him straight in the eye.
