Philippe Quesne: Les Mélancolie Des Dragons

A band of metalheads build an unusual pop-up amusement park for one person in this play by visual artist Philippe Quesne. Besides the constant surprise and delight in unpacking mundanity, the pace of the play allows the audience sink in, slow down, and focus on the simple give-and-take between themselves and the performers.   Quesne is know for his anti-consumerist aesthetic, which is evident in offering an amusement park that focuses on human interaction and being present as opposed to distracting spectacle or adventure.
