8 short choreographed pieces, comical and impertinent, each lasting 7 minutes.

Out in the street, audiences are encouraged to keep their eyes open. You never know when you might stumble across a clumsy waiter, some impatient travellers, or a somewhat irate married couple…
Eight choreographed pieces, each lasting seven minutes, performed in public spaces... In the hands of theatre company Volubilis, these poetic, playful “pocket choreographies” up-end scenes from everyday life, slipping from one to the next in an imaginary progression through a city, village or neighbourhood. These seven pieces are inspired by the symbolism and use of each location, as well as its architecture. The audience are invited to walk from location to location in groups, map in hand, piecing together the disparate scenes as they gradually weave a tableau of reality, leading up to a grand, unified finale. The spectators are invited to discover a new perspective on the spaces which surround us, a shift of focus allowing us to reassess our environment: clever little windows offering a glimpse into fertile, intimate, imaginary worlds, at once funny, moving and disturbing.
