Presentation

After Hamlet, Ovid and Lucrezia Borgia, David Bobée pursues his exploration of the great theatrical figures. Peer Gynt is one such monument, a magnetic, ambiguous character, fearing neither God nor man, in a perpetual quest for greatness, in a frantic search for self, all the way to emptiness. From dodges to futilities, and from adolescence to death, he mirrors our own doubts and acts when confronted with the brutality of the world.

In the setting of an abandoned fair, at the heart of a humanity seeking to rebuild itself on ruins, David Bobée and his actors make this masterful text resonate powerfully with contemporary issues. Dealing with individualism, cynicism and opportunism, with the severest of inequalities and the bleakest of indoctrinations, what will we give up and where does our courage lie?
