Les Somnambules

22 May a 23 May



Les Ombres Portées

Tema: Art

Les Somnambules, performed by the company Les Ombres portées, is a journey to a city in transition. An old neighborhood, due to be demolished, is giving way to a modern dehumanized city. During the night, while the city is asleep, its inhabitants dream. Their dreams echo throughout the city, bringing it to life and transforming it into a place where everything is possible.
Making use of irony, Les Somnambules evokes these contemporary transformations and sketches out for us the look of a city whose appearance is shaped by its inhabitants.
The story is told through a spectacular scale model of the city that gains life through its lights and shadows, with four puppeteers and two musicians who conduct the audience through waves of imagination.
