Action takes place on the island where once lived the dodo. The play is written and performed within the context of an applied research under the direction of the author. One day, stray dogs have taken over the market of the capital city… The panic is such that the characters even lose their own names… In this allegory, the scenography turns into a ritual in which the spectator feels he/she may have been trapped. The two languages most used in Mauritius confront each other in terms of what they represent historically and socially. Poetry is never absent from this full-length play. Created in Mauritius, the play was later invited to an international festival in Monaco. Prefaced by Robert Furlong, (a performer in the original production) the book contains academic and artistic notes, as well as an album of photos taken during a performance.
