Mowgli

Coproduction 2020

If the jungle is a book, what will ours tell? The jungle is an infinite territory, in which the possible has another meaning, or perhaps none.

Through which side of the jungle did they arrive to taste this dream? Each appearance is a wild experience. It is a playground for the self: dangerous, disturbing, embarrassing and exciting at the same time. Becoming wild is a political project in resonance with the social construction. This collaboration draws freely on storytelling, movement and voice, through Mowgli and the lyrics of Iranian singer Googoosh and French-rap-duo PNL. In conceiving a form of PNLology, and by merging body, breath and spirit, the duo Darabi-Lakhrissi crosses the themes of the chosen family, melancholy and urban legends to tell themselves (in part) and the others (principally), a collection of lived and fantasized stories.
