We have all been bored, trapped in monotony. We have all dreamt of escape. Our minds construct fantastic worlds to break us out of routine, taking us to our own private paradise. But eventually we have to come back. We always have to come back. 20,000 paper balls, three performers and office equipment create wonderful vistas in a stunning visual voyage through what it means to be bored. Performers portray office workers happily oppressed by routine, except one. Winner of the Les Enfants Terribles Award 2017.

Bric à Brac are an international theatre company who tell true stories in unexpected ways. With a core ensemble of theatre-makers from across the UK, America, and Norway, we graduated from the Jacques Lecoq theatre school in 2015.
Having bonded over our shared language in physicality and clowning around, we created Bric à Brac with the mission of producing bold, collaborative performance that is visually playful and that challenges and subverts our Lecoq-based background.
We take real stories, those which touch us most, and explore telling them in striking, eclectic ways.
