In a post-apocalyptic looking dead end stand a few shacks, some dilapidated caravans and makeshift shelters left to weather the cold and the wind. A handful of inhabitants live there, in extreme conditions, far from everything, amid the loneliness and boiling passion which take them to the gates of madness and perdition.

A choreographic roller-coaster
For this version, which entered the Opéra de Lyon ballet repertoire in September 2018, Gabriela Carrizio and Franck Chartier, the founders of Peeping Tom, have adapted their thit 32 rue Vandenbranden for 15 dancers, inspired, most notably in its snowy set, by Narayama's Ballad of Imamura. In this theater of cruelty that digs deep into the question of loneliness, Peeping Tom probes our most shameful impulses, deep in our souls. To skilfully distorted musical classics (Stravinsky’s Firebird, Pink Floyd), the bodies contort, substituting improbable invented gestures for feelings. Where sordid daily life meets dreamlike fantasy, where horror meets comedy, madness and violence carry the spectator to the very heights of conflicting emotions. A sensational theatrical and choreographic roller coaster.
