Flesh

Conceived and directed by Sophie Linsmaux and Aurelio Mergola, Still Life’s Flesh makes playful, disruptive drama about our need for affection and recognition.

A hit at the 2022 Avignon Festival, Brussels-based Still Life’s wordless dark burlesque in four short acts makes us lose all sense of proportion as we try to stifle appalled but helpless laughter.

From the awkwardness of a hospital visit under Covid to a sophisticated, celebration party for two, from an embarrassing Titanic movie VR experience to a bizarre, post-funeral family gathering in a pub, FLESH is a modern fable that forces us to think about who we are and how much we need others.

PRAISE FOR

Flesh
“Mute but far from silent, and phenomenally visual, their theatre resonates with what the audience projects onto it.”
La Libre Belgique
“Between laughter and emotion, [they] take us into their world where gestures take precedence over words, where bodies express what the voices do not say.”
Le Soir
“In these piquant chronicles of human habits in the 21st century, reality reveals its hilarious absurdity in a box of surprises (stunning set design by Aurélie Laroche).”
