ÔQuel Dommage was born in 2010 in Brussels cabarets with three actresses/creators: Justine Moreau, Céline Pellin and Clara Lopez Casado and their first creation "The Mourners". In 2013 the company consolidates, they created the show "Henri" and founded its legal structure (O Quelle ASBL).

 

Compagnie Ô Quel Dommages’ world is one of absurd, clownish and poetic theatre. Gestures, images and music interact to oust the spectator from his or her habits and surprise them with imagination. We explore a non spoken theatre that brings together audiences of all ages and nationalities.

 

In their creations, they like to explore the chaos of the modern world and feelings, seeking to bring forth poetry and humor through the universality of gesture. With each new creation, in a concern for renewal and the search for new techniques, an artistic team is brought together around the core of the company and contributes to the enrichment and quality of its shows.

 

In 2012, the Company will take charge of the organisation and programming of the Festival de théâtre de rue Saltimbanques in Brussels in collaboration with the Centre Culturel Bruegel in Brussels.

 

At the beginning of 2017, the show "Henri" gained an ASSPROPRO tour in Belgium. In August 2017, the company will give birth to its first creation for young audiences, "Ma Tache", with the support of the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and the CCWB. It will make its premiere at the Rencontres de Théâtre young audience in Huy in the same year and, to follow, a beautiful international tour. The show received the prize for best creative work at the International Children's festival of Kotor, Montenegro and the Jury Prize at the International Theater Festival for Children in Bucharest, Romania.

 

They have already traveled to the four corners of the world to present these shows thanks to the support of the WBI (Wallonia-Brussels International): France, Holland, Tunisia, Montenegro, Chile, China, Romania, Spain, Finland, Palestine, Bulgaria, Portugal, Slovenia, Austria, Poland and the Czech Republic with more than fifty performances.

 

The Company is an effective member of the CTEJ (Chamber of Theatre for Children and Youth), Aires Libres (Federation of Street Arts, Belgium) and the ASSITEJ International.

 

The company is in the process of creating a new show with the working title "Cosquillas". A show for young audiences from 4-5 years old, without words, visual, playful and poetic around the theme: The pleasure of having a body and the pleasure of the others’ body. We plan to make this new creation for the Rencontres de Théâtre Jeune Public de Huy 2021.

 

Today the Company has 4 shows on tour: "Ma Tache", "Room service", "Henri", and "Les Pleureuses".
