Théâtre Waouw - Show "Au Commencement"

Description

A gritty and surreal comedy that plays with the codes of representation and the different levels of reality that fiction allows.

Three young actors try to stage the Old Testament but nothing goes according to plan. Mysterious phone calls torpedo the performance, disputes surface and the divine light finally appears - but it doesn't shine on everyone. Brilliantly meeting the dangerous challenge of talking about religion in the theatre without offending anyone, this play reveals the tension between ego and faith, the power dynamics inherent in all groups, and the values that each of us carries, whether inwardly or outwardly. Atheists and believers of all faiths emerge lighter and, perhaps, a little closer to mutual acceptance.

From 14 years old.
