Philippe Quesne / Vivarium Studio



75 min

Philippe Quesne produced his latest performance in Japan. In “Anamorphosis”, which premiered in February in Yokohama, he is collaborating with four actresses from Tokyo’s Seinendan company. The director and visual artist is staying true to his emblematic laboratory conditions: Extreme everyday situations and the smallest experiments on urban melancholy or ecological dangers are viewed under the microscopic gaze of the theatre.
