Little Big Horn is an independent, non-profit-making association based in Brussels that was established to produce and promote remarkable creations.
Although it is primarily involved in contemporary theatre, this does not preclude interdisciplinary projects. In addition to its own productions, it collaborates with other artists and cultural operators, sharing expertise and facilities.
Today the association is comprised of Caspar Langhoff, Nicolas Mouzet Tagawa, Silvio Palomo & le Comité des Fêtes and Leïla Di Gregorio who leads project development. Although their approaches are clearly very different, they are all devised by defining their own production contexts and operating within atypical timeframes.
On 24 and 25 June 1876, a coalition of Sioux and Cheyenne, who had come to defend the sacred lands of the Lakotas (one of the Sioux peoples) in southern Montana against incursions by the American army in contravention of a treaty, inflicted a bitter defeat on General Custer’s regiment. This event remains etched on the memory of the United States.
Little Big Horn is a battle won by history’s losers, the Amerindians.
Paying homage to them is a reminder that even though the macro-tendency might be depressing, some battles can be won and continue to have an influence despite the unrelenting historical narrative.
