Halory Goerger and Antoine Defoort


Part of Out There 2016

“I will simply say it is one of the most refreshing, exuberant, and clever explorations of human consciousness I have ever seen on the stage.” —Seattle Vanguard

Both absurdly charming and deeply philosophical in approach, Germinal asks how we would start the world from scratch if we had the opportunity to do so. And with that, four intrepid individuals on a blank stage gleefully rebuild life as we know it. Their tools include mind-melds, pickaxes, microphones, electric guitars, and four-part harmony. In Germinal, French artists Halory Goerger and Antoine Defoort move freely between theater, performance, and visual art and create one of the most internationally talked-about recent works in contemporary theater. In French with English surtitles.
