About

In the final instalment of Philippe Saire's ambivalent trilogy on glamour and entertainment, the dream machine is breaking down and the irreversible end of entertainment seems close at hand. In what appears to be the aftermath of a serious party, a glitter ball swings precariously from the ceiling and streamers are left scattered on the floor. All that is left of the illusion is an enormous white rabbit. A quintet of dancers courageously tries to put things right with acrobatics, hesitant tap dancing, clumsily executed magic tricks and flights of unsettling fantasy, but can they survive long enough to take a final bow? Founded in 1986 and now based in Lausanne, Cie Philippe Saire has created 25 shows to date, winning an international reputation for idiosyncratic and compelling dance theatre.
