La Baraque | The Shack

Througout 2013 and 2015, all the theatres participating in the TERRORisms project presented an original play, specifically written for the project. These series of plays conveyed the means of theatre to put forward a certain aspect of the issue and nurture both an artistic and scientific reflection.


Neither young nor old, Grand and Petit — two futureless and hopeless men — unintentionally get caught in a staggering process of wealth accumulation. Everything gets out of control when they decide to build a homemade bomb and attack the shoe company, which they hold responsible for the accident that has left Petit with a disfigured face after falling from a window because of his slippery shoes. A few days after the explosion, a man comes and rings at their place: he has seen everything. One after the other, people start showing up at their place to place orders. Grand and Petit try to meet their demands, though they have no ideology and no political awareness of the political meaning of their acts.


Using an elliptic form, La Baraque displays a succession of rough sketches, in which nothing never gets too serious: a terribly efficient comical mechanism.

An acid and ludicrous phantasmagoria, in which a couple of cranks almost unintentionally make a fortune by going into the business of war.
