2016...




A TURBULENCE OF MUSES; a symbolist ritual with eight players
representing diverse aspects of one entity, the poet Arthur Rimbaud,
undergoing a systematic derangement of all the senses towards the
creation of poetry.
A living ritual dressed up as experimental
theatre, a
n insurrection of the Poetic Imagination!

VIDEO DOCUMENT OF THE PERFORMANCE




Someone asked me what this show is about. It's a bit of a wild party
fraught with dour clown conversions, drunken waltzes, hyper-aromatic
flowers, sublime poetics and whatever orchestrated chaos erupts
from the underlying rituals every night.
- Antero Alli, director
