Cie Tréo-Hol

A dark, nightmarish humour reminiscent of the writings of Franz Kafka and the films of David Cronenberg.

Having lost a hand, Roberto gets a new one grafted on... But the new appendage is not a natural fit: gradually, the forced cohabitation becomes unbearable...
Inspired by a true story, Tro-héol presents the story of a man getting to grips (literally) with a new part of himself. Roberto’s anguish and confusion are presented in darkly comic fashion, as he comes into conflict with a limb which appears to have a life of its own. Both sides have their own personality and ambitions, each attempting to control the other.
A virtuoso performance from the actors-puppeteers, bringing this vibrantly idiosyncratic character to life.
