Description

French interdisciplinary pioneer Raphaëlle Boitel premieres her ravishing aesthetic and world-class artistry in Boston with When Angels Fall. Drawing its inspiration from such disparate sources as Pina Bausch, David Lynch and her longtime collaborator, James Thierrée, this delightfully dark and entrancing production employs dance, cinema and circus to weave a tale of flightless angels surviving in a post-apocalyptic world.

Amongst the constant downpour of toxic rain in a stark, mechanical environment, Boitel’s survivors confront the fragility of civilization within the sudden absence of a natural environment. When one survivor refuses to settle into this bleak new world, what first feels like a rebellion leads them to question the very structure of reality. Philosophical, poetic and absurd, this US premiere of When Angels Fall will vividly interrogate the age-old struggle of man versus nature.
