Arm – Mireille & Mathieu
Summerhall Festival - Demonstration Room
Mireille & Mathieu unpack their paraphernalia at a flea-market. Objects and toys turn out to be bursting with stories. These little scenes: gentle, poetic, cruel or comical, follow in quick succession. Within this happy delirium, nothing’s taken seriously in a field of exploration and absurd experiments... Uncomplicated, excessive, surrealistic Belgian humour bursts with delightful absurdities and hilarious scenes. Their style is a cascade of associative imagination; what gets Mireille & Mathieu going is their impulsive fantasy. One of Belgium’s oldest and legendary absurdist companies makes its Edinburgh debut as part of Big in Belgium 2017.
