Join Belgium based company: The Society of Wild Beasts in residence at TripSpace.
THE SOCIETY OF WILD BEASTS will perform the result of their residency

A timeless space, maybe a bunker after WWIII, closed from everything that exists.
No air, sound or emotion find their way in.
In a final confrontation, two ex- lovers meet after a long time, detached from the world and themselves, as if they were the last speakers of a lost language.
Four performers in a multidisciplinary performance inspired by Quartet by Heiner Müller and the characters from Dangerous Liaisons by Choderlos de Laclos.
