Agôn (2016) would be the sum of all these reflections and it is Florian Pugnaire’s most syncretic work. We see two combatants confronting each other, prisoners of a timeless loop. The set comes alive and metamorphoses around them to finally self-destruct: carried away in this perpetually changing scenography, the actors seem absorbed by the violence of their own action, almost indifferent to the brutal reactions that surround them.
