Compagnie Gare Centrale
A couple, lost at sea. Playthings for the prevailing winds, their moods tossing and turning, just like their small raft. Their course is uncertain.
The couple have lost everything: their stylish home, their beautiful garden, the lease on their shiny new car. The bank has taken everything. Their poverty is absolute.
Perhaps only Jesus can still save them, perhaps only he can return their 60' colour TV? Pleading to him with their gospels of conspicuous consumption they are saved! Run aground on the virgin soil of a deserted land, the couple are ready to rebuild their lives... but are they fated to make the same mistakes?
Creating humorous, bickering, larger-than-life husband and wife characters, and using masterful and imaginative object manipulation, the award-winning Compagnie Gare Centrale presents this bitingly funny and darkly satirical allegory about the dangers of existing purely for the material life.
Founded in 1984 the company has presented its work around the globe to great acclaim. In 2017 its founder and performer/Artistic Director, Agnes Limbos, was honoured as a featured artist of the world-renowned Festival Mondial Theatres De Marionnettes in France.
