Having been tested out at numerous festivals around the world, with various awards to its name, the Belgian theater collective Peeping Tom is finally coming to Berlin.

About

Known for its dense atmospheres and hyperrealistic works, “32 rue Vandenbranden”, revolves around the members of a small community living in a trailer park. What drives the people who live there, almost buried in the snow? As voyeurs, the audience observes the events through the windows of the simple dwellings: domestic violence, sex, grief, death. Five dancers and a mezzosoprano inhabit this unstable, surreal universe, governed by their own laws of time and space. Their isolation leads both them and us into an unconscious world of nightmares, fears and desires – to the dark side of what it means to be human. This theatrical trip is accompanied by an eclectic selection of music, ranging from Bach to K-Pop, Bellini to Pink Floyd. “32 rue Vandebranden” is inspired by the film “The Ballad of Narayama” by Shohei Imamura. The film depicts the legendary traditions of a remote Japanese village community which sends its elderly people to die on Mount Narayama at the age of 70. Peeping Tom was founded in the year 2000 by Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier, who previously danced with Alain Platel and Needcompany.
