The Moles are on their way!

Philippe Quesne
Parade of the Moles

For the start of the 20th international on Friday, May 19, French director Philippe Quesne and his Paris based theatre Nanterre-Amandiers have come up with a fabulous surprise: At noon a labour of gigantic moles will conquer the square in front of City Hall.  With insatiable  curiosity the remarkable creatures set out on their expedition of Erlangen’s city centre before they  dig  themselves in a dark corner of the Markgrafentheater, where they will officially open the festival with their grotesque visual theatre performance “Welcome to Cavleland” . In case you didn’t manage to get a ticket for the opening night, this is your chance!
