DIPTYCH / TRIPTYCH
The missing door, The lost room, (The hidden floor)
Diptych / Triptych is a new creation by Peeping Tom, scheduled to premiere in 2020. The performance consists of two or three short pieces: The missing door (directed by Gabriela Carrizo), The lost room and The hidden floor (both directed by Franck Chartier).
In this new creation, Peeping Tom is reimagining the three short pieces and adapting them from the originals created by Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier with Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT 1). For the first time since 2009, Peeping Tom searched for a completely new ensemble to feature in this new production.
Several characters are evolving in spaces from which they cannot escape. They set out to seek an ideal, they left with a dream and with hope. Now, they keep wandering throughout a mysterious and macabre labyrinth in which they are lost. The characters live between reality and what’s imagined, guided by natural forces that lead them to an uncertain destiny. Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier create a disturbing, dark and enclosed world – typical in the work of Peeping Tom, while at the same time putting a unique and extreme language of movement and performance at the centre of the pieces.

"Gabriela Carrizo's piece is so innovative that it would have been worthy of the great Pina Bausch herself."
***** - The Telegraph
"'The missing door’ combines a comic Kafkaesque bleakness with the surreal imagery of René Magritte. It is, consequently, humorous and disquieting. Here, untimely death is as pointless as in Kafka, and as cartoonish as in a Coen Brothers' movie."
