Temple du présent – Solo for an Octopus
Théâtre Vidy, Switzerland

Stefan Kaegi, Nathalie Küttel and Judith Zagury came up with the idea of creating a theatrical aquarium with an octopus, this talented, curious and funny animal. The relationship between the human and the octopus builds the shape of the performance until the roles change: who is playing with whom? Who is watching whom?
The performance was created in January 2021, but it was not possible to present it live to the public until the end of April. Temple du présent, Solo for an Octopus is one of the episodes of the theatrical series Vous êtes ici designed and produced by République Éphémère.

Recorded show available on the VOD platform (vod.teatr.torun.pl) free of charge
from 22.05., at 18:00. Access time 24h.
Polish and English subtitles

Running time: 1h
