S 62°58’, W 60°39’
The new creation from the Belgian company Peeping Tom catapults the spectator into an immersive experience foreshadowing future apocalypses, all the while humorously playing with the codes of performance.
Like a ship locked in Arctic ice, our world sometimes seems adrift and powerless in the face of current crises: the pandemic, war, soaring inflation, climate change ... Peeping Tom bears witness to it all in a work titled S 62°58’,W 60°39’, that navigates between hyper-realistic, cinematographic stage sets and the theatricality of dancers/actors who perform a "fake" crisis. But who is manipulating what here? Behind the virtuosity of peering into a staged abyss, Peeping Tom dives into the heart of questions more pertinent than ever in this day and age haunted by fake news, scepticism and disinformation, where the concept of truth itself is the first casualty.
