“The final part of Peeping Tom's trilogy of dance shows is an eerie one of life lived underground...”
Le Sous Sol is the final part of Peeping Tom's first trilogy. The characters encountered in Le Jardin and Le Salon are now dead and buried, but live on underground. They find themselves in a strange world where social codes no longer exist; the family pecking order is ready to be turned upside down.
Inspiration was found in Dostojevski 's Bobok. The deceased characters talk about their death and ask themselves questions about the lives they have lived. The situational humour creates an important contrast. In this piece Peeping Tom brings the ancestors into play even more forcefully than before. An extraordinary addition is the collaboration with the 80-year-old butoh dancer Maria Otal. Le Sous Sol was selected by the Belgian/Dutch Theaterfestival.
