L'événement culturel de l'été à Bruxelles!
Paroles & Musique: Morrissey and Marr Metteur en scène: Andrew Wale Chorégraphe: Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui Avec: Katie Brayben, Krysten Cummings, Sigalit Feig, Garrie Harvey, Sean Kingsley, Katrine Lunde There was no narrative structure to this show which, musically, was a compilation of songs recorded by The Smiths (Morrissey and Johnny Marr). Whilst the vocal and musical performance was agreed to be powerful and talented, the show itself mystified the audience. It consisted of a series of episodes against back projections of jerky Super 8 films, interpreting the lyrics of the songs. These episodes included, amongst others, a man in a white rabbit suit simulating sex with a girl dressed as a leather-clad Alice in Wonderland, a man and a woman having occasional sex on a table, Helga the au-pair with red hair plaits, and a finale where the rabbit gets shot and has his throat slit. As one reviewer said: “The white rabbit wasn’t the only unhappy bunny by the end of 90 minutes”.
