Trilogy on Stilts

October 18
7:30pm
Agnes Flanagan Chapel

Tilogy on Stilts is a piece made up of three short street theatre performances on stilts which each represent a culture from the European Baroque era – German, Italian and French. The performances are all bilingual and explore the influence of these languages and national cultures on the arts in Bohemia during the Baroque era. Geisslers Hofcomoediaten uses its unique approach to blend elements of street theatre, classic wooden stilts, jumping stilts and live music to tell timeless stories and excavate the connections between these cultures during the Baroque era.

Check HERE for tickets to both events.

Join us after the show for a brief talk from Philippe Brand of the Foreign Languages and Literature department on the historical context and contemporary relevance of Moliere’s play. A Q&A with the company to follow.
