LANDS END (France)12/08/2008 - 13/09/2008
'An acknowledged master of wordless visual theatre'
The Times, London
LANDS END, the critically acclaimed latest work from the master illusionist and magician of the theatre, Philippe Genty, will commence a national tour in August. These will be the first Australian performances by Compagnie Philippe Genty since 2004 when they presented their hugely successful production, Vanishing Point.
An intriguing mix of puppetry, illusion, mime and dance, Lands End is a poetic journey through a dreamlike landscape. Philippe Genty dives deep into the subconscious and creates a series of extraordinary scenes which are by turns whimsical, melancholy, and playful.
