Walter Ego

Presented by Shenkman Arts Centre and MIFO

When the unexpected happens...
Mr. Walter lives his life alone in his little apartment.
As soon as he wakes up, Ms. Weather Reporter announces his mood for the day: sunny, grey, or dark and stormy.
One day, there’s dead silence.
Walter is disoriented.
What if this sudden stop inflames the world around him?
His vision is distorted: objects come to life and revolt!
Is this a surrealist nightmare or does he simply have his head in the clouds?
In this world where anything can happen, he can finally dream, let his imagination run wild...

This is a wordless performance that can be enjoyed regardless of the language you speak.
