CRASH PARK – THE LIFE OF AN ISLAND

Director: Philippe Quesne

In his new production “Crash Park”, the director, visual artist and scenographer Philippe Quesne brings to the stage an island populated only by a few palm trees and animal species. After a plane crash, which only a few passengers survive, the initially peaceful situation turns into chaos. What would happen if catastrophes were not regarded as the end of a path taken by humans? In his inimitable style, Quesne embarks on a journey to the beginnings of the world, of language, of images – and to the beginnings of theatre.
