trailer

the new creation by cie. toula limnaios is inspired by the motif of the »ship of fools«. this dates back to plato, but became a burning theme in literature and art, especially in the middle ages. »la nef des fols« is an almost surrealistic allegory of the vices of our time: we frenetically navigate a pilotless ship, subject to the paradox of total freedom and complete imprisonment at the same time.

»the journey of the madman is a rigorous separation, locked in a boat from which there is no escape.« michel foucault (from: »madness and society - a history of madness in the age of reason«)
