Les employés

General public

Laser-sharp, this creation marks the return of creator Cédric Delorme Bouchard, who continues his journey between body, voice, and machine.

Can I trust my colleague? What do these nightmares mean? Am I (still) human? When mysterious objects are brought aboard the six thousandth ship of a powerful space exploration corporation, the fragile cohabitation of its human and look-alike employees breaks down and descends into violence. Adapted for the stage from the novel by Danish author Olga Ravn, THE EMPLOYEES is a spellbinding work by director and designer Cédric Delorme-Bouchard.
