“This piece from Belgian company Peeping Tom follows an aristocratic family in decline, all set in a once opulent drawing room.”
Discover Peeping Tom's first trilogy! Watch the film of Le Jardin (2002) and the full shows of Le Salon (2005) and Le Sous Sol (2007).
Le Salon shows the mental, physical and financial decay of what was once a wealthy family. The aristocratic grandfather, a cornerstone of the family, unconsciously drags his children along with him as he tries to keep up appearances.
Set in a once opulent drawing room - now a symbolic glory hole - he slowly loses control of his house, his bladder and - ultimately - his mind. The househould he once led is now run by his offspring, who treat him as shabbily as they treat one another.
