Chronicles: a Lamentation Song of the Goat - La Mama


"I've been haunted by this piece since I saw it, and I'm dying to see it again or find where this Polish company is and what they are doing. It was like witnessing real magic, experiencing some ancient powerful ritual, some physical and spiritual rite. What those actors did with their voices and bodies; they could fly, fire was zipping all over the place, your ears were ringing with chanting. It’s embarrassing because I can't articulate what happened in that theatre. But when I left, I was profoundly changed, the world seemed more horribly beautiful somehow and I worried I had dreamt the whole thing."
