Have you ever been to a recording studio? Now is your chance! Take this extraordinary opportunity to see the particular and intricate possibilities technology gives to the theatre world and watch a story unfold in a room that creates images that aren't truly there… is it truly a dystopia? This impressive show, Dystopia, is the talented work by the Argentine trio Alfonso Barón, Hermes Gaido, and Luciano Rosso. This trio is also known to have already created the ballet Un Poyo Rojo; a production that has been successful for more than 15 years in 30 countries! Between dance, theatre, and circus, Dystopia shows us the flaws in which technology leads us… but, of course, with a bit of humor!
A dystopia is a dark fiction depicting an imaginary society that prevents its members from achieving happiness… and that is exactly what the Argentinian trio has prepared for you! In this show, which oscillates between dance, theatre, and circus, two characters portray, with great humor and subtlety, a world that has been led astray by new technologies, video effects, and green screens. Dystopia proves that laughter can sometimes allow us to take a step back and reflect on certain shortcomings!
Théâtre du Rond-Point
History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre du Rond-Point
If you ever want to feel the pulse of the French theatre scene, the Théâtre du Rond-Point is the place to be! But which roundabout or "rond-point" is it exactly? It's one of the most famous roundabouts in Paris, located near the Champs-Elysées, smaller than the famous Etoile roundabout under the Arc de Triomphe. Since 1981, it has attracted a host of directors from all over the world and a host of people with a passion for theatre. A major venue for contemporary creation since 1991, the Rond-Point does not programme "what people like, but what they don't yet know they’ll like", according to Jean-Michel Ribes, the theatre's current director. A real creative programme focused on living authors creating stories in real-time!
