This UK début by rising stars of Belgium’s acclaimed contemporary theatre scene forces us to think about who we are and how much we need others.

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, a sophisticated celebration party for two, an embarrassing Titanic movie VR experience to a bizarre, post-funeral family gathering in a pub.

FLESH was conceived and directed by Sophie Linsmaux and Aurelio Mergola. Still Life is a Brussels based company making playful, disruptive drama about our need for affection and recognition. This UK premiere follows an acclaimed run at the 2022 Avignon Festival.
