International hit La Mélancolie des Dragons comes to us for its UK premiere. The poetic and playful story of a band of long-haired metalheads on a quest to build a hard-rock amusement park, La Mélancolie des Dragons is a breathtaking blend of theatre and visual art from our 2015 international guest artist, Philippe Quesne, the artistic director of Nanterre-Amandiers Theatre in Paris. Featuring a car, a dog, classic rock, medieval recorders and a snowy stage, it’s a visually stunning mix of imagination, music, and charming (and undeniably French) humour.
The performance on October 1st will be followed by a discussion with Philippe Quesne (Artisitc Director of Nanterre-Amandiers Theatre in Paris), Professor Deirdre Reynolds (French Studies, University of Manchester), Dr Anirudha Dhanawade (Art History and Visual Studies, University of Manchester) and Walter Meierjohann (HOME’s Artistic Director of Theatre). The discussion will be chaired by Dr Francesca Billiani (Director of CIDRAL).
