The Fantasist

SINÓPSIS

En la mente de la fantasiosa, las fronteras entre lo real y la imaginación se difuminan peligrosamente.
Mientras Louise intenta conciliar el sueño, sus extravagancias toman forma; los objetos se animan, el tiempo se transforma…y un inquietante seductor aparece, ofrecido a un mundo de magia y la embriaguez.

Combinando brillantemente el arte de los títeres, el teatro físico y una composición musical original, la obra explora los enigmas de las caídas oscuras y de los ascensos extravagantes de un espíritu excéntrico atormentado por el trastorno bipolar.

The Fantasist ha visitado Irlanda y Gran Bretaña después de su estreno en el Blue Elephant Theatre (Londres) y después de su éxito a ventanilla cerrada en el Festival Fringe de Edimburgo en 2012 y 2013.

Presentado en colaboración por la Compagnie Traversière y Theatre Témoin (UK), con el apoyo de Arts Council England.
