"A performance by STAN usually starts with a text, but not this time. There's a female former PARTS student who spent her childhood on a small island in Sweden and who's always cold, and a girl from Haarlem in the Netherlands, who graduates this year from Studio Herman Teirlinck, and a fifty-five-year-old charming former clown who did a scene from Les Dépits Amoureux with a skinny actress who also teaches toddlers, and a female philosopher who constantly trips over her own feet, and a man from Paris with a strange hairstyle who also loves to direct videos, and a female energy blast from Lyon, and a Parisian ballerina who, afterwards, attended drama school in Toulouse and whenever she tells a story everyone rolls around on the floor laughing, and of course that fantastic Portuguese man we already met earlier, and we are there, too."
a performance by and with Simon Bahkouche, Mélanie Bestel, Judith Davis, Claire Dumas, Minke Kruyver, Nadir Legrand, Tiago Rodrigues, Kajsa Sandström, Frank Vercruyssen and Cathy Verney
