SLAVE ISLANDAdd to my Google Calendar
By the Compagnie Les Enfants du Paradis
Former Greek slaves fled their condition by taking to the sea to occupy an island and establish their own Republic, their own rules, their own laws. The law of the island? To re-educate the masters who happen to end up there, like Iphicrates and his valet Harlequin. From then on, masters and slaves exchange roles, clothes and names, telling each other the truth, seducing each other and playing at seduction. Can we achieve social peace by helping each other? Treating your fellow man with humanity - that's the real revolution of Slave Island?
Marivaux's social comedy offers a profound reflection on human relationships and the desire for power, as well as on the question of freedom and equality between individuals that continues to trouble our societies. Les Enfants du Paradis revisit this powerful text with brio and conviction.
