"Three iddle rich meet regularly to play cards.

One evening, bored, they realize that playing had lost its attraction. Winning was not exciting enough.

They decide to "spice up" their game and by changing the rules : 

The loser of the next game would pay with his life"

Created and constructed as an Hitchcockian film, Killing Time is a choreographic piece where each element is thinking in a cinematic way. A silent piece with a contemporary pantomime, Killing Time is a suspenseful huis-clos unlike anything else. With a simple but fearsome plot, Grégoire Manhes leads the audience into the heart of a veritable descent into hell.
