The Guest explores the ambiguous border between hospitality and hostility. How do we treat those that have just joined our community? A short story by the French writer Albert Camus partly inspires a choreographer who is as capable of charming audiences with her art as she is at making them squirm uncomfortably in their seats. Her choreography, one hundred percent physical and full of both energy and poetry, explores opposites that are constantly changing. In this piece, she invites the audience to sit all around the stage to witness at close hand relationships that the performers establish amongst themselves and to see how these ties affect their ability to make choices.
