The dancing sound of Firedog and Water Rat – three proverbial impossibilities; The Ogre, the Phoenix and the Faithful Friend; plus Boreal Castles: this performance trilogy covers what Benoît Lachambre considers to be the “All in All” of individual identities and political contexts. Profound, transdisciplinary reflections on artistic and sociocultural realities are created at the Künstlerhaus Factory in collaboration with dramaturg Kathy Casey and a handful of artists from Canada, Mexico and Lebanon. Not to mention a total of 80 pink hula hoops.
