The Sheep Song

FC Bergman, Toneelhuis

View pictures
A modern parable about our fear of and attraction to change in our lives. The tragedy of man as a fundamentally changing being.
In The Sheep Song, FC Bergman tells about a being that is no longer satisfied with itself. It feels that it has more within it and that it is destined to lead a more glorious life than that of its fellows. Ovis Orientalis Avis prepares to undergo the ultimate transformation, determined to defy fate, the laws of physics and good taste. Dark clouds appear on the horizon. The pounding of hooves makes the earth tremble. The gaping mouth awaits. The desire for change proves to be a storm that is difficult to quell.

Yes I am Mother Nature's son
And I'm the only one
I do what I want and I want what I see
Could only happen to me
 
I'm so free
I'm so free
 
Oh, please, Saint Germaine
I have come this way
Do you remember the shape I was in
I had horns and fins
 
I'm so free
I'm so free


Lou Reed, I’m So Free

The Sheep Song at the 75th Festival d'Avignon!

This afternoon in Avignon, the programme for the 75th Festival d'Avignon was presented during the annual press conference, which was live-streamed. Festival director Olivier Py, fully supported by various French government authorities, made the case that the 75th edition of the festival will effectively take place from 5 to 25 July this year. A hopeful prospect! The festival will be organized in conformance with the corona measures, including testing, limited seating capacities, etc. FC Bergman will appear at the festival this year with The Sheep Song.
