Wacky urban safari
For all ages

Nicolas Buysse is returning to Rennes, after the poetic performance of Jacques last summer, for the revival of this utterly crazy urban safari, featured at Les Tombées de la Nuit back in 2017.

In this parody of fad therapies meant to help us find “happiness” and our “true inner self”, the actors (Nicolas Buysse and Vincent Hennebicq, i.e. the coach and his assistant) take us on a ludicrous Walking Thérapie audio tour through the heart of the city, in order to better chase away anything that clouds our desire for a better life. It’s time to cast off all hardship and sadness, and our fear of others and even ourselves…

The walking tour plays with the modern conventions of life coaching and therapy, using the urban space as a giant playing field in which the two actors perform. Scripted dialogue and improvisation blend together in this flurry of words, music, gestures and transgressive movements. In this absurd journey alongside the two crazy preachers, Walking Thérapie explores the city, transforming it into a film set where each passer-by has a role to play, becoming an actor in an unfolding story. A human community takes shape somewhere between the laughter and jokes, with both its weaknesses and uncanny resemblances.
