Cecilia Bengolea / François Chaignaud Castor et Pollux


Bengolea and Chaignaud’s third creation explores the limits of heroism in an adaptation of the Greek myth of Castor and Pollux – the story of twins’ inequality towards death. The dialectics of rise and fall, central to the piece, is materialized on stage thanks to a complex mechanism of slings and pulleys. It is also a hint at the gods’ power over men’s destiny.
