Les Vélocimanes Associés – Der Lauf /BE
temporarily not available


A series of absurd experiments, performed with a bucket on the head. In a dark and intimate atmosphere, Der Lauf is authentic Belgian surrealism, halfway between David Lynch and René Magritte. Strange and joyful, absurd and jubilant, interactive and dark. A juggler with a bucket on his head plunges blindly into a series of existential experiments that lead him down unknown paths. His double is his opponent and you are his only guide, and nothing will hinder the course of things… unless you decide otherwise.

The performance is inspired by a rather comical experimental film: in 1987, Peter Fischli and David Weiss filmed a series of moving objects in a warehouse. For thirty minutes, the unpredictable happens. Explosions, collapses or fire, the warehouse becomes the scene of a series of strange and totally fortuitous events, a real theater without actors. This short film became famous, and took the name Der Lauf der Dinge or The Way Things Go. Creation and play: Guy Waerenburgh, Baptiste Bizien, Julien Lanaud (or Juliette Delfosse or Paul Roussier) Outside Eyes: Éric Longequel, and Bram Dobbelaere for “le bonneteau” Lighting design: Julien Lanaud Production: Les Vélocimanes Associés asbl and Le Cirque du Bout du Monde
