A melancholic party, a dark celebration. A poetic hymn dedicated to the feeling of helplessness and apathy. When you don’t know where to go, you just wait. We are all waiting for something, but this has a cost, the waiting is eating up our interiors. Conditioned as we are, no room as ever been left for any patience.
Once more accompanied by his frenzied “GAnG” of actors, dancers and musicians, Frédérick Gravel presents a choreographic concert filled with a frankly corrosive energy.
