In 33, rue Vandenbranden a unique world takes shape, a world where the borders between reality and imagined reality become blurred. We find ourselves in an isolated community, a snowy mountain town where rickety caravans offer the only protection under the unchanging heavens and whose young inhabitants are confronted by their loneliness and the subconscious. The people we follow succumb in the face of fears that turn out to be totally imaginary. The people are living in a vacuum and have become caught in a vicious cycle. The place is full of hopelessness and melancholy – yet is still poetic and beautiful.
The cinematic craftsmanship opens the door to dizzy scenes of an irrational world surrounded by an ultra-realistic set design. The music enhances the hypnotic mood as the onlooker is cast into this cold and stormy universe.

Before founding Peeping Tom, Franck Chartier and Gabriela Carrizo worked as dancers and performers with Anne Teresa de Keersmaekers, Alain Platel, Needcompany and Angelin Preljocaj. Now for the first time Peeping Tom are creating a work for a company other than their own, a tailor-made work for about 20 dancers, based on the performance 32 rue Vandenbranden created by Peeping Tom (Concept and direction: Franck Chartier, Gabriela Carizzo. Creation: Jos Baker, Eurudike de Beul, Marie Gyselbrecht, Hun-Mok Jung, Sabine Molenaar, SeolJin Kim). Interacting with the dancers on stage is mezzo soprano and multi artist Eurudike De Beul.

For the intimate drama 33, rue Vandenbranden we create a new stage on the Main stage, where also the audience is placed.
