Belgium Première

Dancing until losing or discovering the self. Reaching the point where endurance allows a different being to show. Is this more authentic, more touching? Does it evoke unlimited challenges where humans can let themselves be crushed by their taste for records and exploits?

Manuel Roque moves, dances, and bounds, without ever releasing the tension: he takes on his own performance directly as if it were a metaphor for our stressed-out lives.
An exploration as a manifesto on exceeding one's limits, bang bang is a theatre subject for a kamikaze soloist who never stops seeking his target. It is what he undoubtedly finds in himself...
