What happens when four long-haired rockers get stranded with their compact car in a snowed-out no-man’s-land, where they unexpectedly meet a spectator who is as astonished as she is willing? With lots of artificial snow, soap bubbles and huge plastic sacks, a haven emerges right before the audience’s eyes to counter the ordinary, everyday madness. First performed in 2009, the cult production by the internationally celebrated director Philippe Quesne is now returning to the stage of HAU.
