Coming from a very human woman and a bull of divine origin, the Minotaur concentrates in its hybridity the excess (hybris) that gave birth to it.
Between Crete and Athens, the stories of the labyrinth test and the fight against the monster are all ways of expressing the transition from one state to another. But the porosity between humanity and animality does not necessarily place the monstrosity where it is expected and the appropriations of this theme – ancient and modern – are rich perspectives.
“Who does not have his Minotaur?” To ask this question is to invite to listen to the thousand and one voices of a Minotaure constantly recreated.
