Five Easy Pieces

Mousonturm Saal

ALL IN/Performance/Theater

Five Easy Pieces deals with the life and crimes of Belgian Marc Dutroux and with him various taboos and painful aspects of private as well as political life. On stage: children and teens between 8 and 13 years of age. In five “exercises” the young actors show a historical panorama of Belgian history, while testing the boundaries of what children “should” know, feel and do.
