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.
Since July 2019, the company Still Life is an associate artist at Théâtre Les Tanneurs, Brussels
