A series of absurd experiments, performed with a bucket on the head. In a dark and intimate atmosphere, Der Lauf is authentic Belgian surrealism, halfway between David Lynch and René Magritte. Strange and joyful, absurd and jubilant, interactive and dark. A juggler with a bucket on his head plunges blindly into a series of existential experiments that lead him down unknown paths. His double is his opponent and you are his only guide, and nothing will hinder the course of things … unless you decide otherwise.

The performance is inspired by a rather comical experimental film: in 1987, Peter Fischli and David Weiss filmed a series of moving objects in a warehouse. For thirty minutes, the unpredictable happens. Explosions, collapses or fire, the warehouse becomes the scene of a series of strange and totally fortuitous events, a real theater without actors. This short film became famous, and took the name Der Lauf der Dinge or The Way Things Go.
