Le Peep Show booth is an invitation to fans of the forbidden, shameful and addicted…

The term “Le Peep Show" connotes a somewhat taboo place of transgressions; sex, sanctioned eroticism, malevolence and prohibition. Indeed, the social censorship of peepshows reveal the fantasies that are hidden from societies everyday life.

During the fairs of old, the onlooker delighted in coming in and out of the fairground stalls to discover the freaks and outsiders like the Bearded Lady and the Snakeman. Le Peep Show is a diversion from these kinds of traditional sideshows; a new dimension of erotic voyeurism as performance art. The confined room creates an atmosphere that is imposed upon the spectators, creating a space that flips between voyeurism and exhibitionism. We approach eroticism by linking it with the circus tradition of showing bodies in their beauty, their ugliness, their strengths or weaknesses. In seeking to activate these conflicts between discomforts, pleasures, fantasies, dislikes, we use the circus to highlight controversial expression, all the while keeping the tried and true elements of sideshows and peepshow.

The show turns out to be a farce, an ingenious treasure that causes viewers to traverse a spectrum of emotions in a short time: fear, curiosity, embarrassment, confusion, intelligence, discomfort, fun, laughter, and complicity, inconvenience. Spectators face these unforgettable & addictive emotions, bringing them and their friends back repeatedly to experience it all over again.

The entrance to the show is set with a rough and lively ticket booth where the “Peep Show mother” spruikes the audience to buy tickets. Tickets are sold at around the price of a coffee to ensure that audiences want to return again and again to see all the different acts. This fuels the addictive sense of missing out.

Actors both in the queue and the corridors accompany the audience.

Le Peep Show is cut into small sequences from 10 to 15 minutes each for 24 spectators. The audience is placed around the stage in a corridor and peep through little windows.

Le Peep Show uses Chinese pole techniques, dance, acrobatics, acrobatic balances, soft rope, shibari, stripping etc.

It is funny, intriguing, sad, over the top… and alive!
