Gimme Shelter 15+

Violaine Fimbel / Co-producers Compagnie Yôkaï, Charleville-Mezieres, Le Manège - Scène Nationale, Studio Césaré - CNC / 70 min

Are there places where you can feel safe today? Are there any shelters? The performance questions our relationship with the outside world today.  One of the prisms is the social phenomenon hikikomori, that is voluntary social isolation. The phenomenon originated in Japan but is spreading elsewhere. It is about a person’s fear of the outside world, which causes him or her to withdraw indoors and to break contact with the outside world for longer periods. The performance is framed by an atmosphere of ecological catastrophe, the characters in the performance refuse to leave their shelter, and they rely on being safe indoors. Outside, however, are survivors - "lost children" who are threatened by the polluted environment. Who can escape the dark future and how?
