They dig into food, sex and existentialism. Why do the rich eat so much? Why do they wear Angora sweaters? And how come they have such a hard time figuring out how to live their lives?
fix+foxy invites a group of people on welfare benefits to test and comment on upper-class living as portrayed by the cultural elite themselves.
In fix+foxy’s La Grande Bouffe, two social groups clash in the theatre. Our prejudices about one another turn into a image of modern life with all its hopes and meaninglessness.
Based on the movie La grande Bouffe by Marco Ferreri, Rafael Azcona and Francis Blanche with permission from the publishing company Nordiska ApS – Copenhagen.
La Grande Bouffe was performed 21 November – 1 December 2015 at Dansehallerne in Copenhagen.
“Shame, anxiety, stigma, dreams and powerlessness towards the system. Bon appetite!”
