(Attention : performance in French !)
Today, time is synonymous with productivity and efficiency. The importance that is given to sleep, that useless part of time, grows ever smaller. The fact our nights have become shorter and shorter can be interpreted as the drifting of reason’s hold over our imagination. The conscious has colonised the only space within us that still remained wild and primitive.
Squash is an entertainment for the subconscious, a documentary / performance / musical for a sleeping person and their audience. For entertainment for the subconscious is the future.
Intertwining a dream-board, the anthropological analysis of sleep, a neurological discovery and a musical, this show is about unconsciousness, lucid dreams, mathematics, time that is lost, desires, sexuality, entertainment, absence, presence, memory, life and oblivion…
Squash plants time in the desert of our dreams in order to give them meaning and allow us to eventually sleep more to produce more. The times when you felt guilty about oversleeping are over. Be welcome to the era of useful sleep! So that tomorrow, our children can change the world whilst having a nap...
