How could a tooth possibly have landed in dish number 6 (chicken Thai soup, with coconut milk and ginger)? How can that tooth change the life of each of the tenants in the building? What is going on inside the tiny kitchen of the Thai-Chinese-Vietnamese restaurant Le Dragon d’Or?
Amidst boiling woks, alcohol and a toothache, its occupants – five immigrant workers –, suffer quite a bit of woes, while having to cope with the utmost indifference of their customers, who lead typical Western lives: tired stewardesses, a young couple awaiting a child, a man who was left by his wife, a dead body thrust from the top of a bridge… This kitchen is the centre of a perfectly unacceptable world: our own.
An ensemble work showing a precise architecture, Le Dragon d’Or mocks the absurdity of our world to reveal how cruelly we treat “the other”.
After Le combat ordinaire and D’acier, Robert Sandoz ends here his trilogy on industrial society, this time exploring the incorporation of foreigners into Western societies, with a text written by Roland Schimmelpfennig, one of today’s most performed German playwrights.
