Beautiful Escape: Emergency Exit by ADHOK

With life expectancy more than doubling in the last century, what does it mean to be old? Featuring seven actors between ages 60 and 80, this trilogy of performances from French outdoor theatre company ADHOK reflects on childhood, adulthood and senescence. Poetic, non-narrative and conceived for the street, this promenade of storymaking and dance highlights our perception of getting older, the fears it carries and the treasures it hides.


Cast: Christiane Colard, Françoise Loreau, Irène Palko, Claudette Walker, Guy Delamarche, Dominique Gras, Dominique Langlais
Directed by Doriane Moretus and Patrick Dordoigne

Created in 2010, ADHOK (Beautiful Escape: Emergency Exit) has given birth to 5 creations in the Theatre-Dance field designed for the public space. These creations are part of a Trilogy that addresses issues related to today’s generations. In Europe, ADHOK company is part of the European “In situ” network coordinated by Lieux publics in Marseille. Each of the creations enabled us to share the issues associated with each generation. The founders of Cie Adhok, Doriane Moretus and Patrick Dordoigne, have been working for over 30 years in the public space, and are keen to pursue their activities in this direction.
