musique for theatre
Soundtrack by Jerome Baur - Switzerland, 2015
By Jez Butterworth, directed by Geoffrey Dyson, Claque Theater group - Switzerland - 2015
In the country everyone can be good," Lord Henry mockingly declares in The Picture of Dorian Gray, "there is no temptation. But Oscar Wilde's hedonistic nobleman never spent a drunken afternoon in the forest of Flintock, a fictional town in Wiltshire, England.
He never frolicked in the clearing in front of Johnny "The Rooster" Byron's mobile home, falling into an alcoholic coma while his host dished out tall tales between bouts of illegal substances. The Rooster, corrupter of young people, grotesque affabulator, rebellious squatter and menace to the municipality, is anything but honest.
But he is not completely bad either. He wavers mischievously between amorality and righteousness, showing himself to be more of a woodsman than a man bound by civic laws.
