Peeping Tom: Triptych (The missing door, The lost room and The hidden floor)

London International Mime Festival

Belgium’s Olivier Award-winning dance-theatre innovators return with the UK premiere of their new and most ambitious production yet.

Three enigmatic and seductive stories come together in a trilogy of shifting time, memory and premonition, played out in cinematic scope and atmosphere. The Missing Room brings us to a place where doors will not open; mysteries deepen further onboard a ship in The Lost Room before culminating in the watery, abandoned restaurant setting of The Hidden Floor

Following its Mother/Father/Child series and 32 rue Vandenbranden Peeping Tom reach new heights of imagination and physical dexterity in this thrilling work. A hit at the 2022 Venice Biennale, Triptych plunges us into the lives of others with extraordinary dynamism, surprising at every twist and turn.
