Parc 2019

A nightmare that smells like blood and chlorine, a black comedy that exudes the disillusionment of the "Save Willy" generation.


It is from behind the scenes of a water park - where shows with sea lions, dolphins and orcas follow one another - that La Station Collective invites us to take a closer look at a fine team of sea animal trainers.


Anke, Lars, Nicolai and Kania are about to experience a drama that will suddenly force them to glimpse the gloomy backside of the scenery. 


We follow characters filled with contradictions who suddenly see their deepest and most established beliefs and certainties collapse. This opens up depths that are as sensitive as they are cruel.


What happens when, in contemporary entertainment spaces such as water-show parks, these workers - who owe it to themselves to be in total control – are suddenly confronted with an accident that brings them back to what they are: trainers of an unstoppable force? 


PARC is a collective writing on (in)human reactions to shock and it aims to highlight an entertainment society that fascinates us as much as it revolts us.
