Belgian premiere "Le cri des méduses" by Alan Lake in BrusselsDélégation générale du Québec à Bruxelles Brussels Thursday, August 18, 2022 to Saturday, August 20, 2022
Inspired by Géricault’s Raft of the Medusa, the performance immerses us in a complex “tableau vivant” in a post-apocalyptic universe where people struggle and come together.
Cartloads of bodies intertwined in unlikely piles follow heaves where the floor slips away... We are gripped by a strong physicality embedded in a powerful imagery. The magnetic appeal that electrifies the stage produces a fascination that endures from start to finish through a series of startling images.
Combining a powerful vocabulary and a perfect understanding of the ensembles, Alan Lake navigates between suggestion and reality without being able to determine its limits and contours.
From August 18 to 20, 2022 - 8:30 pm
