Trân Tran (CH)

Extra Time — creation

in the frame of Extra Time

What motivates us to go to the theatre? Is it to laugh? To be changed? To support culture? For a date? To see naked people? To see something poetic? To relax? To get our money’s worth? To expand our general culture? To be able to say we were there? To witness an unforgettable collective event? To reflect on serious issues or to forget about it all? Through various devices and actions, light, funny, deep at times and always extraordinary, HERE & NOW invites the audience to share their expectations and the reasons for their presence. If there is a recipe for a show, what ingredients will the audience put forward? Trân Tran and her accomplices will thus attempt to create a “pièce montée” of sorts.

Au far°, les jeunes déclarent leur admiration
