Audrey Dero (BE)
Down Tiger Down [Hau ab, Tiger]
Today is Audrey’s birthday. For this special occasion, she wants to bake a carrot cake, following the recipe of her cuddly toy Félix Flamingo. She invites the audience to prepare and eat the cake with her – but Tiger has also just invited himself to the party. He stops her from baking and eating and takes everything away from her. Audrey wants Tiger to go away – for her fears to disappear, for everything to be okay and for her to enjoy her birthday. She doesn’t want to be afraid to grow up.
“Down Tiger Down” is a surreal and funny performance about how to tame your fears and manage to accept yourself as you are. Because every strange and dangerous tiger is sometimes just a cute cat … In her intimate shows, Belgian artist Audrey Dero tells visual stories with objects and different materials. The audience sits very close to the action around a large table and follows the charming play of Audrey and Tiger. Who is actually who here? And how many are hiding under the table?
