TICKETS ON SALE FOR NYU SKIRBALL MEMBERS ONLY!
French theater director and visual artist Philippe Quesne invites you into a parallel universe where there are no humans and no words. In this mysterious underground world, larger-than-life moles are not solitary creatures, but the architects of something between a utopian community and a punk rock band.
PARADE OF THE MOLES
THU, SEP 12 @ 2PM
In this free event, the Moles will venture forth from NYU Skirball to explore the great outdoors and Greenwich Village landmarks. The public is invited to join in this informal parade as the Moles explore the NYU neighborhood.
Night of the Moles
FRI, SEP 13 & SAT, SEP 14 @ 7:30PM
A burrow. Seven giant moles emerge from cardboard tunnels. They dig, cook, draw, copulate, give birth, and even form a punk-rock band. A disconcerting microcosm that could only have come from Philippe Quesne’s imagination. Wordless theater of the ecological and philosophical underground, this is an improbable journey to the center of the earth.
Appropriate for ages 16+.
Afternoon of the Moles
SAT, Sep 14 @ 3PM
In this family-friendly performance, the Moles remain chaste but perform all their other daily tasks, from digging to forming a punk band that rocks their underground world. There will be a pre-show activity for children and their families.
