“Breathtaking! And exciting, because each of the characters
tells a true story. A collection of collective stories.
This work is a descent into the heart of humanity.” Le Figaro
For the first time in Milan, the Belgian company acclaimed throughout Europe with an aesthetically irresistible theatrical installation with intelligent content.
A famous pianist realises on stage that she has studied the wrong concerto – A neurosurgeon swaps the head and body of two monkeys, they survive – In Japan there are 700,000 people who live as hikikomori, locked in their bedrooms for at least a year, completely detached from social life – Six degrees of separation, a theory that states that each individual can connect with another through no more than 6 intermediaries in the world.
Thirty stories, transformed into as many video monologues with a dramaturgical construction that creates coherence between them. The duration of each intervention will be exactly the same. Different interactions will take place at different times. Directors Bart Baele and Yves Degryse have encountered interesting people, facts, anecdotes, adventures, intrigues and thoughts. The themes that emerged from these stories are eclectic: from philosophical hypotheses to scientific detail to anecdotes, etc. A large oval structure on the perimeter of which 30 screens/stories are mounted, accommodates 30 spectators
