The Afternoon of the Moles

Part of the festival “The Mole Keeps on Digging. Animals / Politics / Performance”

Theatre

ca. 60 min.

All children are invited to get in touch with a new species of moles that dwell in their subterranean retreat, waiting for their audience. Blindly but persistently the seven giants struggle with everyday life, and in their big mole-world on stage do whatever seems fun. Director and set designer Philippe Quesne, a master of the magical and the bizarre and a regular guest at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, in this afternoon version of “The Night of the Moles” opens the gates to the underworld especially to young people.
