Work type: Play.


In La Compagnie Bewitched's production the action takes place in the 1990's with a fusion of British Pop music and Opera amongst a set created by Louise, a 15 year old new designer, who matched the conditions of the character Gideon for her design. Through interactive performance, underneath a large woollen web filled with drawings and memories, actors and audience will embark on a magical adventure together. This beautiful play is at the same time a socio-political story as well as a fairy tale. Philip Ridley's masterpiece is about that moment when childhood fantasy meets adult drama.Translation Marie Mianowski. Director Gaspard Legendre. Design Louise. Performer Gaspard Legendre.
