Aurelio Mergola and Sophie Linsmaux create playful, disruptive shows which mix humour and quirkiness.

Since 2011, Aurelio Mergola and Sophie Linsmaux have been working on constructing a unique on-stage language. Two heads are better than one for the duo, and their fruitful creative collaboration has enabled them to take a more long-term approach.

Through their productions, they develop their own form of carefully written visual theatre. In their dialogue-free plays, they dissect a world in which everything is going very, very wrong. They set about distorting time, and revealing our bodies and emotions. Deprived of words, their theatre represents and interrogates a world in which humanity is in jeopardy as it tries to find meaning and purpose at all costs.
