PREMIERE – LE COMPLOT DU QUOTIDIEN

28, 29, 30, 31 March and 1st April 2023 
Les Brigittines – Playhouse for Movement, Brussels (Belgium)

Le complot du quotidien (or Everyday Conspiracy) transforms the triviality of movement into an absurd universe. The two performers juggle with the overabundant impediments and accidents in an attempt to magnify them in the centre of the stage, turning them upside down, transforming them, and imbuing them with fantasy. This is an invitation to contemplate the world and its day-to-day reality with surprise, humour, and intensity.
