The surreal theatrical production, Theorie des Prodiges, is headed to Shanghai in April 2020. The highly acclaimed show is performed by French company Système Castafiore and combines experimental dance, music and imagery to create a truly spectacular performance.
Theorie des Prodiges begins with the discovery of a 16th-century manuscript listing 'miracles' that occurred in ancient times. This discovery fills in gaps of human knowledge, giving meaning to phenomena unexplained by fantasy and interpretation.
This work was created in residence at the Maison de la Danse in Lyon. Through song, dance and a backdrop of projections of fantastical landscapes, System Castafiore delivers a very simple message: "We need to dream and believe in wonders."
