An abandoned travelling theatre, early twentieth century. Piles of boxes lie in the shadows. A young woman enters and discovers her father’s old Kinetograph. She turns the machine on… and puppets, shadows, videos, and illusions draw us into the life of Georges Méliès. Méphisto Méliès offers a playful and curious look into the artist’s work and his incredibly enthusiastic creativity.

Multi-award winning Théâtre Motus combines forces with Pupulus Mordicus (known for its cheeky irreverence, its poetry, and playfulness, and for its surprising aesthetic qualities) to bring us this new, remarkable performance.

Presented by REALTA real estate agency.
