Danse, Morob

written by Laurent Gaudé

A woman searches for the remains of her father, an ex-political prisoner, whose body has been stolen from its grave.

Led by a pack of dogs, she follows their trail and uncovers the truth about his disappearance.

Written as theatrical magic realism, Danse, Morob raises key questions around the legacy and cost of radical revolutionary action.
