SPRING in Autumn
31 Oct - 2 Nov 2019

Crash Park

Philippe Quesne

Philippe Quesne is a master at making theatre with a poetic, slightly absurdist twist. In Crash Park the French director and visual artist stages a desert island with palm trees and rare animal species. The peaceful nature is interrupted by the survivors of a plane crash. Is this the end or a new beginning? Can they set up a new, better society? Or will they make the same mistakes as before and destroy their habitat? This virtually wordless version full of loving details shows the lost man, dreaming of a better world with all man’s faults and shortcomings.
