Abattoir Fermé (Belgium)

80 minutes

Tourniquet is a wordless story and a plotless production in which three macabre characters indulge in dark rituals and exorcism. There is no story: they dance, strip and drink blood-red wine. For more than ten years, the Belgian theatre collective Abattoir Fermé has been creating visual, cinematic presentations that can best be compared with a bad trip: dark, ominous, filled with fear. Who dares?
