Who killed Cock Robin? is a bizarre and poetic journey of initiation, children's fantasy and dark nightmare. The performance of Joanna Dudley and Rufus Didwiszus reveals scenes of dark beauty and leads the audience into a surreal world of ritual and ceremony, to the accompaniment of Ars Nova music, a 14th century genre of vocal music, masterfully adapted by the renowned vocal and instrumental ensemble Capilla Flamenca.
This is the story of a fat little boy (Joanna Dudley) who one evening leaves the safety of his home to set out on a journey. On the way he meets six bearded guardians (Capilla Flamenca). Drawn to these men, the boy entrusts himself to the care of this strict community. A journey of transformation begins, accompanied by expressive singing and the video compositions of Swiss artist Samuel Dématraz, whose works conjure up an atmosphere of disquieting, dark beauty.
Seductive and powerful, Who killed Cock Robin? explores traditional narratives, alternating between animism, transitional rites and fantasy, and in doing so continually blurs the border between reality and fiction. Who killed Cock Robin? is the first joint production between Joanna Dudley, Rufus Didwiszus and Capilla Flamenca since the great success of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's Foi.
