THEATRE: 'Black Battles with Dogs' at Théâtre de la Colline
La Colline is including two English subtitled perfomances in its production of Bernard-Marie Koltès play Black Battles with Dogs, directed by German director Michael Thalheimer. In a West-African country, the building site of a big French company is about to be closed down. Only Horn, the site foreman on the brink of retirement and Cal, an engineer, remain. The arrival of a woman whom Horn has flown over from Paris to marry him and of a black man who has mysteriously entered the city of white men to claim the body of his brother, who died the previous night on the site, ignites the latent violence in the situation.
