Measure for Measure

Chansons sans paroles


At night, in a dark forest, a car runs off the road after hitting a deer. Romantic melodies continue to play on the radio of the still smoking wreck. Piece by piece, the five actor-musicians meticulously reconstruct the accident. As the show progresses, keys are given to the audience and the details of the crash fall into place. The audacious Zurich-based artist Thom Luz constructs a theatrical landscape full of gaps, combining the droll absurdity of Tati’s cinema and the disturbing strangeness of David Lynch’s films.
