Images that trace a trail of memories, future intentions, fears, dreams and nightmares seem to rise up from a twilight state between waking and sleeping. Time and space come apart at the seams. Life becomes a balancing act on the edge of an abyss. The new piece For Rent by the Belgian company Peeping Tom leads us into surreal parallel worlds. Between swirling red velvet and chessboard floor, the dancers plunge through black holes, in which even the most ephemeral of human emotions become fundamental mysteries and perception loses its grip.
For over ten years now, the work of Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier has met with enthusiastic responses worldwide. Peeping Tom has received numerous prizes for their passionate combination of cinematic images and brilliant dancing.
