Pile-en-face consists of five young artists of different disciplines such as hand-to-hand, object manipulation and acrobatics. Together they have created a performance that is based on the combination of organic movement research, a philosophical approach and a clear vision of what is needed to tell a story.
"The sum of what we do" is performance about the inevitable search for meaning in life. This search
often goes hand in hand with the absurd. What do people do when confronted with the absurd? They get the compulsion to find meaning where none exists. Throughout the performance, the characters
try every method in an attempt to find their place.
This up-tempo performance is deeply entertaining despite the philosophical layer that is below the surface.
