Un oiseau vivant dans la gueule

Isabelle Villeneuve

Hidden from the eyes of strangers, desire spreads like a shadow. It devours weaving inextricable bonds. Un oiseau vivant dans la gueule, a woman who recounts a story in a story. At the end of her pen, two men, two cocks, a confrontation of obscure forces. Images engraved in flesh. Hoarse sounds held behind clenched teeth.


“A violent love story in which three aspire to solve the equation of two so that two may become one. It is a risky enterprise for actors, simple in intent but complex in its definition. Above all, it’s a play that cannot be interpreted literally. It not only allows but calls for transposition and metaphor”
