In-person event

A bully firmly convinced that he’s the star of a reality show. A larger-than-life body convinced that it’s the focus of every camera. But how far can you push the boundaries of performance? Where is the fine line between monster and human? A powerful social satire, Larry Tremblay’s play paints a troubling portrait—more timely than ever—of a world that doesn’t seem all that strange to us. In order to attract the attention he believes to be focused on him, and to feed an ego as large as his body, the Ogre doesn’t dismiss any atrocity: he acts on his own fantasies, disregards all boundaries, loses all contact with reality. 

The Théâtre de la Tortue Noire revisits Larry Tremblay’s solo show using a giant puppet. By offering this larger-than-life Ogre, the company magnifies the very contemporary resonance of this play.
