With a cast of young actors, Radu Afrim creates an explosive and emotional performance about death and survival through violence. Buffalos is the story of a family that slowly disappears. Set in a present time laundromat, a family business, where sins and secrets are washed away through violence and seclusion. A child dies, a mother disappears, a father loses himself and four little buffalos are left to survive their family legacy. The aesthetics of pain is reflected in a modern artistic staging with novel visual and sound effects. Radu Afrim brings out on stage the poetic and violent imagination of the enfant terrible in every human.
