A new adventure in Peeping Tom’s absurdist slapstick dance-theater: a quirky take on childhood.
After having met in Alain Platel’s troupe, Argentinian Gabriela Carrizo and Frenchman Franck Chartier set up their dance company in Brussels in 2000. Since then, they have constantly reinvented Belgian surrealism with an amused take on human beings and their difficulties living with themselves and those they love. Since their first series of productions, from "Le Jardin" to "Le Sous-Sol", Peeping Tom have gotten to the bottom of the secrets of the family soul. With "Kind" (Kid), they complete a new trilogy begun with "Vader"(1)(Father) and "Moeder"(2)(Mother). And as usual, they will dazzle us with their absurdist dance-theater, with its blend of special effects and acrobatics, the tenderness of Pina Bausch and the slapstick of Buster Keaton.
(1) Presented at Théâtre de la Ville in July 2015. (2) Presented at Mac Créteil in January 2017 in the context of Théâtre de la Ville’s off-site programming.
