the show   [ 2021 ] on tour

Yes, we can get used to almost everything.

What makes us so often close our eyes to the suffering of humans elsewhere on the planet? Is it our need to dream? To be happy, no matter what? Using rich, inventive language that combines words, gestures, music and projections, the contemporary circus troupe Compagnie Petri Dish has opted to take a look beyond our blinkers. The result is at times political as well as totally invigorating as, on stage, three performers explore all dimensions, both on the ground and in the air, using hanging microphone cables, mobile furniture, plastic sheets… It all makes for a fascinating ‘Show’ that pulls the wool away from the audience’s eyes.
