Short form presented as part of Soirée Composée / Other show presented : « Brace for Impact » by Knot on Hands.


How do beings live in an institution that locks them away – a place of care, a sanatorium, a nursing home, a prison? Inspired by Kafka, the company Kurz Davor imagines a repressive environment between fiction and reality, but seen by characters from the inside, through the emotions they experience. On a large inflatable mat, two acrobats enhance the most trivial actions; grooming, sitting on a chair, putting on shoes or holding hands with someone become moments of a rare intensity, and the smallest dance begins to look like a heroic recovery of the body.
