It’s a story coloured by absurd interactions and intriguing characters. A performance balancing on the edge of theater and dance, humor and tragedy.
The public will be taken on a trail. They meet the performers and are witness to different interactions – some romantic, others violent, some absurd whilst other are passionate or humorous.
Since its creation, we have had opportunity to experiment on many different locations with our dance material ; we performed in parks, a prison, a museum, a forest, neighbourhoods, an old factory…
Due to this location diversity, “Leaving Normal” developed into a versatile performance, each version tailored specifically to the location and sensitivity to the environment.
Equipped with a music box in your hands, you’ll go on a journey from an apparently normal situation all the way to an absurd one. You’ll change from spectator to witness to accomplice.
Be careful not to get yourself in trouble !
