"The smiling gnomes asked him to come with them. And he said yes.
Now he lives with them in a cave not far from a river, deep in the woods.
Every now and then I go and pay him a visit."
A landscape. A hitchhiker. A family. They almost seem to be waiting for something. Or, what is the opposite of waiting?
In RETOUR, eight theatre makers explore truth and memory, mourning and reconstruction. Manoeuvring between fragmentation and collectivism, the family makes a home for itself on the plain, with the hitchhiker as witness in an oddly recognizable universe.
After six months of experimenting under Monty’s wings, this is the first show presented by montignards#5. A project on location, with the surroundings and the available light as the main partner.
