Prélude à l’agonie

Compagnie of Zerep

From 26 to 29 June 2013


Between a western and Courteline, the time is the same. That’s not bad for doing theater already! And certainly enough for Cie du Zerep, the rule breakers of contemporary theater. It allows for lasso scenes, slamming doors, bucket seats made of boards that serve as bathtubs, words, and a whole bunch of things that are crazy and beautiful – or maybe at the outer limits of humanity. Prélude à l’agonie is the new dark, philosophical fresco by Xavier Boussiron, Sophie Perez and their tribe. With unparalleled actors, a sense of the absurd and extensive knowledge of literature and art, Cie du Zerep turns the stage into a wild territory reflecting a contemporary society that doesn’t have much worth saving. Theater that’s both great fun and devastating, like the conquest of the Far West.
