Corps Diplomatique (Halory Goerger, France): Oct 1 - 3, Project Arts Centre
'Corps Diplomatique is pure, smart entertainment that appeals to the brain as well as the funny bone.' - Inferno Magazine
What if artists were left to drift in a space station for a few thousand years with only one mission: to procreate, write a play, rehearse and perform it, and in so doing to educate the next generation and the generations after that? How quickly would they go nuts? What would their art look like?
Corps Diplomatique is a thought experiment on the survival of our civilisation – a zany, but rigorously documented reverie of an artist who is as intelligent as he is adventurous.
Two years after the brilliant and funny Germinal, created in collaboration with Antoine Defoort, Halory Goerger is placing theatre in a time machine and observing what happens next.
The future is now: fasten your seatbelts!
Performed in French, with English surtitles.
