At its core, Le Concierge is about a blue-collar worker in search of a human connection.


You arrive at a school late at night, joining an intimate group of participants in the foyer. A man appears at the end of the hallway and without saying a word, he subtly beckons you to follow him. By seeing his uniform, you suspect he’s the custodian working the graveyard shift. He will guide you through an immersive journey where you will witness all of his attempts to stay awake and motivated, all of the ways he entertains himself and all of his efforts to keep his sanity during his graveyard shift. His loneliness will reveal his vices and virtues, his obsessions, his dreams and his nightmares.


But the later it gets into the evening, the deeper you go into his dream-like world. The school slowly transforms into a frightening and surreal void. The caretaker’s world distorts itself into an inconceivable nightmare and participants will be confronted to reflect on the role of the working class as well as the effects of loneliness on today’s society.

What Critics are saying

"the overarching quiet provides a contemplative and meditative effect through the fascinating performance. Director Daniele Bartolini’s vision takes us on a roller-coaster-like, stream-of-consciousness ride through mundane reality and frantic imagination, artistic dreams, and anxious nightmares."                                                                                                                                                                                                                          - Ilana Lucas, Intermission Magazine
