Amor by Bilbobasso

A couple in a ring. They’ve got quite a few years of marriage under their belt, and now their tenderness is made up of cruelty and violence.

 

Today, on edge, they can’t get close without murdering each other. The smallest thing can ignite the situation. Actually everything ignites in their home! Cooking, laundry, vacuuming: all these activities and everyday objects find themselves in the middle of a real domestic and unpredictable bullfight where flame, smoke and coloured flying sparks transform an all-too-common situation into a stunning, giant firecracker.

This show is a comedy, a fight, a duel. It’s ambivalent, crazy, playful, savage and tenacious. You’ll never quarrel the same way again!

Hervé Perrin and Delphine Dartus started Bilbobasso in 2006 in France.
