Out There: Philippe Quesne says
Midwest debut of “La Mélancolie des Dragons”
Thu–Sat, Jan 26–28, 8 pm
$28 (Walker Members $22.40)

“A great, humorous, and deeply human, touching work.” —Der Standard (Vienna)

A hatchback has died in a beautiful snowy forest, stranding six metal-heads on their quest to build a hard rock–themed amusement park in protest of cheap consumerism. This deeply surreal fairy tale uses a disarming wit and hints of magical realism—with the help of 1980s rock and medieval recorders—to celebrate the absurdity, joy, and wonder of human existence. La Mélancolie promises a memorable, much talked-about theatrical experience. Conceived and directed by Philippe Quesne—one of Europe’s most distinctive performance-makers.
