A TURBULENCE OF MUSES is a symbolist ritual of 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.
Is this a ritual disguised as theatre or is it theatre
disguised as a ritual ?
Or an avant garde extraterrestrial poetry slam?

THE PLAYERS
portrayed as aspects of the symbolist poet Arthur Rimbaud
during his experiment to induce visions by the systematic
derangement of all the senses.

SYLVI ALLI as Rimbaud...
the Dream Ego in constant pursuit of intoxicating states of spirit possession
by a ritualistic derangement of all the senses!

as The Dreamers... a Family of Spirits in kinship with Rimbaud.

WENDY ALLEGAERT as Krunk...
Rimbaud's Inner Critic as Clown.

an Unconscious Oracle who falls in love with Krunk!

WES MARTUSEWICZ as Raven...

VIDEO DOCUMENT OF THE PERFORMANCE



"A Turbulence of Muses" A Symbolist Ritual from Antero Alli on Vimeo.

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.
