How do you find your place in a world that doesn't necessarily want you?
British performer and director Kim Noble is bringing his theatre to Brussels. In Lullaby for Scavengers, a hyper-vocal yet stuffed grey squirrel and an already-dead fox support the performer in a lost quest. The trio discuss the human condition, what we should pass on to the next generation and maladjustment to the world, enabling the show to draw an irresistibly tragic line under the artist's trilogy on loneliness and friendship.
Out of the bizarre and the disturbing, however, emerges a great tenderness and a completely unique dreamy absurdity. Noble flirts with the pathetic amid the ribaldness, but always comes out on the bright side. One of the best shows of recent years!
