LE RÊVE DE GRÉGOIRE
Information on the activity
May 15, 2014 to May 17, 2014
Le rêve de Grégoire (Gregor’s Dream) begins with an arrest. In his cell, a man awaits his execution. He has no idea what he might have done to deserve such a fate, but whether he finds out or not, it won’t change his situation. He will die. Or maybe not.
But why? Le rêve de Grégoire is a fable. A fable about our world. A savage fable, maybe even a desperate one. But certainly not defeatist.
A fable which asserts: “There is something in me that power and authority, no matter how absurd or out of control, can never destroy.”
