Vivarium Studio


La Mélancolie des dragons

Location: Frankfurt LAB, Schmidtstraße 12 (Gallus)


As the unsurpassed master of strange stage magic, French dragon whisperer Philippe Quesne brings his new international hit to Frankfurt: stranded in the middle of a snowy no-man’s-land, four eccentric characters squeeze their way out of their car. The mountain of objects, which they subsequently haul out of the attached trailer, is the source of incredulous-amused astonishment not only for Isabelle, who was just randomly passing by. Teens and adults in the audience are likewise invited to join in the subsequent crisis management with mounds of artificial snow, bubbles and monstrous plastic bag attractions – also at the warm-up and artist talk on 6 Nov.
