Animal triste

Mélanie Demers


Animal triste

In the centre of the ring under the glare of the spotlight, four individuals converge and clash, revealing both their animal nature and their humanity.

Animal triste is a piece about the human condition, the place mankind lays claim to, even though he is just another “sad little animal”. To escape our condition we build families and civilizations, conquer and often dominate or oppress others. Man is a creature of no significance who only aspires to more and better. Mélanie Demers tries to understand the nature and posture of mankind in all its humanity.
