High Performance Rodeo presents



Two couples wait at the dining room table, expecting a guest. The doorbell rings – but there is nobody there. They speak in a flurry of familiar nonsense, words snatched from Ionesco’s famous anti-play, The Bald Soprano. The doorbell rings again – but there is nobody there.

In its exhilarating return to the Rodeo, Germany’s Theaterlabor brings a whirlwind performance of exquisite absurdity and choreographed chaos. Absurdesque draws you into a cacophonic symphony of plots that will defy your wildest expectations and mesmerize your senses.

The doorbell rings again. Is anybody there?


NOTE: This video is in German, but the Calgary production of Absurdesque will be performed in English.
