Presentation

  • A couple of plutocrats, desperately hanging on to their privileges, wear themselves out trying to maintain their position while everything crumbles around them. Like wax or ice which, once melted, will never return to their original form, they cannot go backwards. They've gone a little too far and anxiety seizes them as they appear stuck with each other. The axis that has kept them proud and arrogant for so long is looking more and more like a crossroads or a roundabout. Faced with something they can't understand, they lose the ability to speak. Once tough and hard, they become limp...

    Thierry Hellin
    Actor Thierry Hellin has appeared in shows by Axel de Booséré, Guy Cassiers, Pierre Laroche, Frédéric Dusenne, Philippe Sireuil, and Thierry Lefèvre, among others. In 1996, he founded Une Compagnie, a company that specialises in a theatre aimed at young audiences and which he co-directs with Thierry Lefèvre and Eric Durnez.

    Agnès Limbos
    Agnès Limbos is a writer, an actress, and a director. Having always been fascinated by the power of the object when it is granted a real presence, she founded in 1984 the company Gare Centrale and developed an artistic research that revolves around the theatre of objects and the actor as manipulator.
