Tuesday, 10. January 2017, New York, Philippe Quesne: La Mélancolie des dragons

A band of longhaired metalheads decide that the snowy forest where their hatchback has stalled might be the perfect location to build a new heavy metal-themed amusement park. A helpful stranger is invited into their world of classic rock, medieval recorders, and large inflatable sculptures. An international audience favorite, this three-dimensional poem is full of visual wonder, joy and melancholy, and sincere delight in human existence.

Originally a visual artist, Philippe Quesne studied visual arts and graphic design at L’École Estienne and set design at L’École des Arts Décoratifs de Paris. In 2003, he founded Vivarium Studio, a laboratory for theatrical innovation that features painters, actors, dancers, musicians, and animals. Quesne is currently artistic director of the Nanterre-Amandiers Theatre in Paris.

Presented by The Kitchen as part of The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival.

January 10–14, 8pm
Tickets $25
