Trophée

Trophée

  1. Trophée is a site-specific performance on the themes of hunting, conquest and military tradition. Three performers in sumptous baroque dresses, accompanied by drummer, conquer a field like an invading army, adopting postures of trophy wives, hunted animals and ghosts from bygone wars. The piece advances towards the audience over 300 meters, playing with perspective. Trophée explores man’s relationship with his environment, the need to demarcate, possess, tame and exploit. This relationship is not limited to nature, but also to his fellow man. New battle lines are drawn and new identities take shape as humankind encounters the limits to this world view.
