Paranoid schizophrenia? A science-fiction conspiracy? Director Emmanuel Daumas flings Audrey Fleurot into the troubled waters of passionate love.

Emmanuel Daumas stages the play by US author Tracy Letts, in which Peter, a Gulf War veteran, is convinced that insect larvae have been implanted under his skin. Obsessed by what he believes to be an international conspiracy, he falls in love with Agnes, a lonely, fragile dancer met in a bar. He pulls her with him into a headlong rush, in which passionate fusion and conspiracy theory are intertwined.
Are these the ramblings of a vulnerable mind or is it a global conspiracy? Bug is a theatrical world consisting of illusions, enigmatic acoustic panoramas and disruption to our senses. A world in which we can see the unseen, feel what escapes us and hear and believe what others hear… United against the world, Peter and Agnes join together to face up to the external forces they fear. They move forward hand-in-hand to the culmination of their love and their ultimate fate.
