Peeping Tom

Overview

The phenomenal choreography and enigmatic visual imagery of Peeping Tom see fantasy and reality collide in this empathetic and surprising portrait of ageing.

Towering walls surround the visiting room of a care home where an elderly father counts his final days. Shifting scenes speak of isolation, divinity, ridicule and melancholia as his complex identity and lived experiences are revealed. People and objects move around him whilst memories make way for hallucinatory, less lucid moments.

Astonishing dance, song and live music are interwoven in this incisive and compassionate piece. Father, directed by Franck Chartier, is part of the company’s surreal trilogy about families, echoing the artists’ own reminiscences, mysteries and hopes. Another part of the trilogy, Mother, was critically acclaimed here in January 2018, whilst an earlier show, 32 rue Vandenbranden, presented here in 2015, won an Olivier Award.
