Merlin

A furry monster, a headstrong child-woman, a jumping shamanic devil, a crumbling statue…

Here the pathways of several fairy-tale characters cross and intersect in what could be the clearing of a dark forest. They recount attempts to formulate the human composure in a relentlessly invasive wilderness. Shaped under the influence of pagan carnivals, this dark present-day tale plays with the irruption of instinct, myth and wilderness through the surface of our social composure. Simultaneously wise man and wild man, Merlin dances at the interface of law and nature: we are moving animals, longing for meaning.

Performed by an outstanding cast of national and international dancers, Merlin stages both the constant and the paradoxical, interlocking between shape and substance, education and instinct, culture and nature, and the rift between our semantic narratives and the pulsations of our organic bodies.
