Winner of Best New Dance Production, 2015 Olivier Awards
Totally gripping from start to finish.
A theatrical electro–shock... their talent is terrifying.
Concept and Direction Gabriela Carrizo & Franck Chartier
Exposed to the elements, under a wide–open sky, six inhabitants of an isolated mountain–top community grapple with a blurred reality and their visceral responses to an inescapable loneliness.
Belgian physical theatre provocateurs Peeping Tom (Le Salon, Melbourne Festival 2009) return to Australia with a hyper–real collision of jaw–dropping physicality, cinematic realisation, macabre slapstick and an unsettling soundtrack from Bellini, Stravinsky and Pink Floyd.
As internal forces determine which turn each individual takes, their motives are exposed and stripped of consciousness. When the borders between reality and imagination blur, the characters lose themselves in a haunting world where humanity and humour punctuate their isolation.
32 rue Vandenbranden is an intoxicating, genre–defying volley from the subconscious: poetic, mesmerising and utterly unique.
