Black Fights with Dogs

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Three Europeans are isolated on the construction site of a western company in the heart of Africa, surrounded by barbed wire fences. High up on the watchtowers above, African security guards call out in the night to one another in throat songs to keep awake. As evening falls, a mysterious man, Alboury, penetrates the camp. When it emerges that he has come to demand the body of his brother who died that day in unknown circumstances, the ensuing action leads to a disturbing twist of events…

Black Fights with Dogs takes place in a world where people are trapped and alone and where racism, fear and envy take hold of each character in turn. This production is the first London revival of Bernard-Marie Koltes' play in over 20 years.

Translated by David Bradby and Maria M. Delgado. Directed by Alexander Zeldin.
