According to Baudelaire, Goya’s strength resided in his ability to ‘make monsters look real’. For their new show, Mossoux-Bonté got their inspiration from the famed Spanish painter.

The Great He-Goat is a ghostly walk in a weird and anxious atmosphere that resembles El gran Cobrán from the Pinturas Negras. Goya painted this series on the wall of his own house. He was a deaf and dying man, looking at a world outside undergoing massive changes: police violence, generalised inquisition, poverty raging…

Ten dancers embody this mob whose situation is getting worse every day. Their connection to reality is getting fainter every day, and slowly turns into a mirage. Each dancer is paired with a life-size puppet, creating even more confusion in this unreal situation. It is a fascinating dive into the painter’s grotesque world. 

A crowd of shadows hums fandangos, chacones, ancient lullabies and lost songs throughout the piece. They accompany the storyline, hide the seriousness of the situations under their delusional and absurd tones, preventing everyone from falling into a generalised debacle. 

The Great He-Goat is a scrumptious visual and musical treat!
