Peeping Tom: Moeder

Moeder (Mother), by the Belgian group Peeping Tom, is an untamed look at the dark side of man, family and society. Inspired by the group’s personal experiences of loss, Moeder balances somewhere on the slanted border between insanity and order, outside of time and space. The performance is the second part of the Peeping Tom trilogy on family relationships, the first part of which, Vader (Father), premiered in 2014.

With a loyal following both at home and abroad, Peeping Tom sometimes takes a nearly brutal look at the individual, but with dark humour and empathy always bubbling under the surface. The hyper realistic worlds skilfully created by the group are, at the same time, both strange and oddly familiar. Moeder’s cinematic stage scenes, which have been compared to the morbidly beautiful visions of David Lynch, display archetypal mother figures, nightmares welling up from the subconscious and grotesque carnivalistic moments.

The performers’ language of movement, primal and bordering on the extreme, feels both intuitive and planned with inch-perfect precision. The carefully constructed soundscape of Moeder also plays a key role: Peeping Tom harnesses the power of sound to hide, reveal and bring out forgotten memories. The result is explosively powerful, touching and inspirational frontline dance theatre for all the senses.
