Running for success
A bare stage, a few chairs, a director and five performers playing themselves—maybe it’s not even a show? And yet, Sophie Gee has created a poignant work that digs through the junk pile of our everyday failures to extract pearls of humanity.
Queen of Dance, King of Hip-Hop, Prince of Finance: the nobility of our time wears the shining crown of success at any price. The courageous performers of Lévriers—most of them immigrants—flip the mirror to the dull side to examine their own failures, flaws and broken dreams, in direct testimonials from an open stage. With them, we laugh, we cry a little, we recognize ourselves a lot ... Because deep down, we all yearn to reach the top of this palace of cards of success, even if it threatens to collapse at any moment.
*120 seats only!
Performance is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes with no intermission.
