*warning cry from the woodcutters before the tree falls.

From a failed attempt to reintroduce an orangutan to a rain of dead birds crashing to the ground, from a family who have come to "misplace" one of their own to a man sinking to his death, TIMBER is a visual and non-verbal show, a contemporary fable dissecting our link to the living.

With TIMBER, a visual, non-verbal show, Sophie Linsmaux, Aurelio Mergola and their faithful creative artists explore the forest as a theatrical playground. A space outside all norms, a place between utopias and nightmares, a place that reminds us our own finitude.
The show takes place in a forest threatened with exctinction. Despite this, the characters seem to ignore the danger, even going so far as to plunge themselves into distress. How can they avoid sinking into the abyss?
