PEEPING TOM – COME ON A CRUISE FROM HELL IN THE TRIPTYCH

Østre Gasværk Teater, 23-25 May, 2024

“Can dance be heart-poundingly exciting? At Peeping Tom, yes.”
Het Nieuwsblad   

Definition: Peeping Tom is a person who enjoys watching a sexual act or a naked person.

 

Dance has always had an erotic appeal. Back in the day, the world of ballet housed several delicate muses and mistresses for the ruling nobility. And many dance classics with the sensual at the center have come and gone. Even the dancers' costumes have evolved towards the more naked and real - although often in the name of aesthetics.

 

The Belgian dance company Peeping Tom is not from the Red Light District.
But if you strip away the aesthetics, is there really a lurking voyeur hidden in every dance audience? Hidden in each of us? voyeur gemt i ethvert dansepublikum? Gemt i hver af os?

Third Act is a film by Belgian documentary filmmakers Mieke Struyve and Lotte Stoops about ageing, about caring and being cared for. 

At each stop on the international tour, Peeping Tom works with local senior citizens as extras. These extras have been sought out beforehand and receive a crash-course in acting before they step onto the stage, often for the first time in their lives. 

The duo Gabriela Carizzo and Franck Chartier, who are behind the ensemble, start their idea development with a familiar closed space; a garden, a cellar or, in this case, a ship, and then let surrealism and magic reign. Here we as the audience, or voyeurs, become part of an unstable universe with supernatural magic. Here, the cruise ship we can all imagine is transformed into a dark hell, where dance as a form of expression can flourish.

TRIPTYCH is an evening of 3 short works on a cruise where the hopeful expectations of the guests are met by challenges that turn the closed spaces into a fight for survival. With the audience as witness – or perhaps as voyeur – The Missing Door, The Lost Room and The Hidden Floor are the titles in the trilogy that has had its triumphal march around the world, including at the Paris Opera itself.
