TOHU, la Cité des arts du cirque Book

Set in a universe of domestic trappings and interlocking stories, People Watching’s new creation "Play Dead" observes the beautiful, twisted and laughable facets of human behavior. Through its dynamic physicality and visual storytelling, the piece puts forth a surrealist chronicle of the familiar.

Far from settling into bored fatalism, "Play Dead" marvels at the absurdity of the mundane and celebrates life with a pulsing desire for connections and intimacy, the same way people desperately dance to the last song before the party ends.
