A Louer

A Louer, directed by Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier, is a fascinating journey through thoughts, memories, visions of the future, dreams and nightmares. The production premiered on 15 October 2011 at the Royal Flemish Theatre (KVS) in Brussels, before touring through Europe, Japan and Korea.

In A Louer, there is no linear time, but rather a focus on that moment of boredom when our thoughts suddenly escape and flee to a parallel world. It is this thread that runs throughout reality. This universe of memories, of future intentions, of fears, dreams or nightmares, constantly spoilt by reality. It is also a walk on the edge of a cliff, the dance of a tightrope walker on this red thread between the feeling of possessing something and immediately losing it, the feeling of balance before falling into the void. Everything is ephemeral because everything can be taken away again from one day to the next: a flat, our personal objects, a job, a person or even a life.

Everything is for rent.

À Louer was nominated in 2015 for a Premio de la Crítica in Barcelona (ES) in the category 'Best International Dance Production'. The performance had already been selected in 2013 for the Ubu Awards in the category “Best Foreign Language Performance” staged in Italy in the 2012-2013 theatrical season. The Ubu Awards are the most illustrious and coveted recognition of Italian theatre. In 2012, À Louer also made the selection of the Flemish-Dutch Theaterfestival which assembles the strongest performances of the past season.
