Set in the obscurity of a fictional night, each appearance in Mowgli is a wild experience

Known for their radical and deeply moving pieces, which combine contemporary discourses on identity with traditional as well as original narrative forms, Sorour Darabi have managed to establish themselves in the international performance scene. The starting point of their latest creation, Mowgli, is the title of a recent song by French rap duo PNL, where the reference to the jungle denounces the still prevalent projection of wildness onto the body of young citizens with a migrant background. And yet, the image of the jungle also gives the opportunity to re-appropriate from within: the possibility of inventing a different law, opposed to the one of the city. Set in the obscurity of a fictional night, each appearance in Mowgli is a wild experience: choreography, poetry, storytelling, fairy tales, the lyrics of Iranian singer Googoosh and those by PNL. Through them, Sorour Darabi construct a collection of lived and fantasized stories, blending the themes of chosen family, melancholy. Becoming wild is a political project.
