Le Labyrinthe revisits the age-old myth of the Minotaur.

The Minotaur is a miscegenated monster born of the illicit passion of Pasiphae, wife of King Minos, for a white bull sent by Poseidon. He is a freak to be battled, enchained, destroyed, incinerated. A chorus of human jailors drag him to the centre of the arena. Confronted with the young woman, the Minotaur "dances the dance of his deformity, while she dances the dance of beauty. He dances his joy at finding her, she dances her fear of being found. He dances deliverance, she dances destiny”. Half-man, half-bull, a metaphor for untamed, unwelcome bestiality, a symbol of our disdain for difference, this human monster awakens echoes of the dark side hidden in all of us. Deploying imagery as beautiful as it is powerful, L'Oiseau mouche – a troupe comprised of adults with disabilities – examines the difficulty of being different.
