WHAT IS THIS STRANGE LAND IN WHICH PACO IS WANDERING?
What’s happening to him? Paco doesn’t know where he is or where he’s at anymore. In this strange land he’s gotten lost in, he runs into a donkey that bites his bum, his son Uriel who has grown up and no longer needs him, and a little girl he doesn’t know but who asks him to be her father. He also meets his body, which attempts to leave him. So, what path should he follow? Funny and light, La morsure de l’âne asks very serious questions about the meaning of life. Committed to contemporary writing, Émilie Le Roux adapts a text by Nathalie Papin for the second time and rises to the challenge of representing Paco’s mental space as well as the confusion in which he wanders.
