“I came to the world anxious to give a meaning to things, my soul filled with the desire to be the origin of the world, and here I find myself, an object among other objects.”

 

– Frantz Fanon

If you opened your senses right now for the first time, what would reality look like? What would it feel like? And how would that change you?

 

I épochè I is a theatre performance asking what happens when you push against reality, and what happens when reality pushes back.

Life isn’t boring.


You’re boring.

 

it’s not even your fault, really.
It’s just that the unknown becomes known,
and then the known becomes familiar,
et voila, now everything is familiar,
and you treat it like it’s familiar,
and now you’re boring

 

|épochè| is a theatre show.


|épochè| doesn’t look or sound like

anything you’ve seen before.

 

|épochè| is not boring.

 

What |épochè| will do for you, for free, is take
the familiar and make it unknown again.
We use video, we use live performance,
we use earphones, we use blankets,
all this and more,
just so you can rediscover anew
the skin you live in.
Aren’t we great?

 

Life isn’t boring.


Don’t be boring.


Come and make some |épochè|.
