In Living, Tristero mercilessly crosses drama with slapstick and domesticity with the sinister. This wordless production shows the living room as a thoroughfare for occupants and visitors, with their thoughts, desires and fantasies. The characters are vague, and so is the plot, but the set is razor-sharp. The set is a hyper-realistic reconstruction of a living room in the style of the early seventies. You might have seen it in Tristero’s legendary production of Abigail’s Party, a bitter-sweet comedy by Mike Leigh.

Living is a cross between theatre, dance and live installation. Lynch meets the Coen brothers meet Jérôme Bel.
