what you will see is
two goblins named Eve and Adam
dying (but not dead yet)
in a cave
the cave used to be a mine
and then a storage place for radioactive waste
so now it’s infected with dark shadows
and infecting them
the cave is their home
or their body
or are their bodies the cave?
it’s full of scars,
that’s for sure,
collected through history and being
but so the question is: what is dying (but not dead yet) with them?
how all these things do not belong together,
but somehow they seem to make up a whole
GOBLINS is a performance by Jana De Kockere and Bjorn Floréal inspired by folklore stories about underground creatures haunting mines in the 16th century to guard the very old treasures of the inner earth.
