Jean Cocteau's masterpiece Les enfants terribles tells the story of Paul and his sister Elisabeth, who nauseatingly challenge each other to with games. In her version, Phia Ménard works with composer Philip Glass' adaptation of the novel. She draws a parallel between the body of an adolescent and that of an elder: both sometimes experience a feeling of isolation, of being cut off from society.

This play on words between Willem de Wolf and his former student Louis Janssens brings together looking backwards and looking forwards. Analoog is an intergenerational performance, a score about completed and desired learning processes. About earlier and later but also about how to position yourself as a young - or older - person within the world.
