“To bee or not to bee”: the urgent question is treated with joyful and striking inventiveness." - La Terrasse
In the post-human future of Farm Fatale five scarecrows miss the birds, which have all disappeared. French artist Philippe Quesne renowned for his inventive set designs, has created an evening of theatre that’s as magical as it is ironic, as activist as it is melancholy, and as gentle as it is catastrophic. In the artificial setting of a white stage, straw bales lie around like props from a bygone age. Our own age. Reflecting topical ecological and political issues in a poetic form, Philippe Quesne transforms one scene of Farm Fatale into a message referring to the current situation.
