In Kind, we enter a distant and out of joint universe littered by somber fairy tales and magic.
We find ourselves in a dark forest at the foot of menacing cliffs, a world that precedes good and evil, in which no limits have been set yet. A girl who is far too large riding a bike that is far too small for her leads us into her universe on the fraying borders of the unconscious.
The piece delves into themes such as violence, the paradox between the real and the fake, the other, trauma, all from the question on identity
Peeping Tom is a Belgian dance theatre company, founded by Gabriela Carrizo (I/AR) and Franck Chartier (F). Everything starts from a hyperrealist setting, such as a retirement home in Vader or two caravans in 32 rue Vandenbranden. They then break open this realism and begin to defy the logic of time, space and mood. You are taken into subconscious worlds and discover nightmares, fears and desires. Presented using a rich imagery, a fascinating battle arises, against one’s environment and against oneself.
