The main character of this story, Cavanoza, is born with a hunchback and raised in captivity by his mother. His mother was overprotective of her son, and Cavanoza became a mama’s boy. As he got older, his sexual desire got bigger, so he used dolls. His mother strongly demanded his love. But Cavanoza rejected his mom, and found a lady who had similar sexual taste. Cavanoza chained and whipped her, and they enjoyed doing this relationship. As his mother saw this scene, a weird love triangle started to form between the three of them.
‘Le Grand Ceremonial’ demonstrates a “wrong relationship” between the main character and his mother on the basis of the mother’s love, and through a love triangle. This work is a coming of age ceremony in which Fernando Arrabal celebrates himself.
The representative of this play, Professor Lee Ji-hun, wanted students to get to experience performing arts by ‘Le Grand Ceremonial’. She said that students, especially in Gyeong-Nam, don’t go to see performances naturally and that it is difficult at first to go. But once they experience it, it becomes easier to go again. She has offered a lot of pieces in the past, but this time, she also intended to give people a shock through the story of ‘Le Grand Ceremonial’.
