Do you not get enough sleep either? As early as 1880, Paul Lafargue felt it was necessary to hold up the mirror to our work-obsessed society: he demanded a "right to be lazy".

In their performance entitled "EXIT", the Belgian theatermaker, Kris Verdonck, pays homage to the relaxation and the stillness of sleep together with the dancer and choreographer, Alix Eynaudi, and the musician, Rutger Zuydervelt from Machinefabriek – moments when the relentlessness of work, production and consumption are temporarily suspended
