This 25-minute theatrical marvel uses a simple wind turbine to create a vortex in which plastic bag characters evolve, responding to the movement of the air. Originally commissioned by the Natural History Museum of Nantes, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Foehn (a pun that refers to a mountain wind) transforms simple plastic bags into charming, graceful characters. Manipulated by the flow of air, the plastic bags swirl and twirl to Claude Debussy’s most famous ballet work, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun. February 14-15 and 19-21. Ticketed event.
