When a child sticks to you and invites you into your home, when he threatens to tell you that you are doing things down to him when it comes to the idea of firing him, when you measure to what The insolence of this being resembles and repairs you, difficult to expel.
This is precisely what happens to Great Man, desiccated by loneliness, when Little girl gets stuck in her apartment. The child in need of breathing (and incidentally fascinated by solitary worms, women-trunks and sea monsters) demands care, attention, disturbs a daily newspaper and by the "innocence" of its questions, reveals little by little knots that must be solved Grande Monsieur: to free oneself from one's childhood, to complete mourning in suspension, to take back what was violently removed.
As funny as it is moving, Leonore Confino's play invites the viewer to a poetic journey in the heart of universal themes such as identity and childhood. The Belgian Fish is a true hymn to the difference.
