Léa Tirabasso

TOYS is play, perfection, human tragedy’s disguise in the form of a permanent celebration. It is the search for pleasure in order to make light of the wait, losing oneself within a group, celebrating bad at the beginning of the sparkling century.

The beauty of the absurd, philosophy and popular culture are all equal influences which inspired the young Luxembourg choreographer, Lea Tirabasso to develop this creation. This is an existential and philosophical reflection on humans and their constant search for pleasure.
