[thb_toggle title=”Synopsis”]

« Three singular and burlesque characters, in their own way, will go through the absurd and competitive universe of the world of work. Everything starts in the minimalist setting of a white room where a catchy music is broadcasted and where those three characters will be left to their own devices in an endless wait. Who are they? Why are they here? Why nobody takes care of them? What’s going to happen and how long can they support this situation? »

In society everyone wears a mask, a costume, a «tie» and it’s truer in the world of work, where we spend the most important part of our time. The first idea of this project was to start working from typical behaviors, codes and languages that the human being uses in his professional environment, and to provoke a singular and burlesque situation to progressively unmask them, make them «take of the tie » and reveal the humanity, the weaknesses and the poetry that anyone possess and which all of us want to hide.
