“An uncomfortably visceral, darkly comedic and riveting performance work.” – The Sydney Morning Herald, Australia
Exposed to the elements, under a wide-open sky, six inhabitants of an isolated mountain-top community grapple with a blurred reality and their visceral responses to an inescapable loneliness.
Belgian physical theatre provocateurs Peeping Tom will come to Macao with a hyper-real collision of jaw-dropping physicality, cinematic realisation, macabre slapstick and an unsettling soundtrack from Bellini, Stravinsky and Pink Floyd. When the boundary between reality and imagination blurs, the characters lose themselves in a haunting world where humanity and humour punctuate their isolation.
One of the inspirational sources being Shohei Imamura’s The Ballad of Narayama, where an old woman is taken to the top of mountain by her son to die. 32 rue Vandenbranden is an intoxicating, genre-defying volley from the subconscious: poetic, mesmerising and utterly unique.
