In order to control life we try to name it, in order to control death we perform it.

In A crock of bull at the crack of dawn theatre maker, performer and designer Rachid Laachir explores metamorphoses. By using body, voice, costumes and other objects, he creates characters at the intersection of the natural, the human, the magical and the mystical.  

A crock of bull at the crack of dawn is a revue of small and big emotions. Each scene is an act of love or violence, an act of ego or god, an act of life or death, an act of importance, an act of boredom. 

Through a collage of acts, he searches for a universal language, away from reason, towards madness. He employs the language of movement and of objects that speak. The image breaks down and builds up, the light breaks on the floor and illuminates what breaks.
