Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles

in petto

Cie OKIDOK

Circus

For this creation, OKIDOK puts forward a non-verbal work of clownish duality, oriented by a theatre of gestures with a strong aesthetic. The clowns, deformed mirrors of our fragile humanities, summon, in petto, the absurdity of our existences.

How do we survive when the world is perpetually collapsing under our feet? The cart that shelters them, at the same time dwelling, lodge and promontory, is in unstable equilibrium on the single axis of its two wheels. It rocks constantly, swings us all from side to side, it mows us down, kicks us out and torments us.

We try to find, in a suspended moment, a compromise, a precarious balance, a salutary solution which will allow us to continue on our way, the path of our life.
