Small Wonder: The Seattle Star reviews La Mélancolie des dragons Sep 14, 2015

The Seattle Star's Omar Willey reviews La Mélancolie des dragons:

According to some developmental psychologists, children of a certain age do not distinguish between internal fantasy and external reality. Adults find this quaint. As adults, it is their duty to distinguish such things. This is fantasy. This is reality. You’re being unrealistic. It’s only a dream. When are you going to grow up and see?

The Amazing Play Sep 13, 2015

by Nora J., 2nd grader

Last night I went to see La Mélancolie des dragons. Most of the time they were just doing stuff like walking around with big bags of air or reading books or just doing stuff. I can do that. I can walk around. I can read a book, too. They’re doing stuff that almost anyone can do. It’s not “Here’s a new ice cream flavor!” You can do a lot of that stuff, too. But it made it really funny.

A Brilliant Dreamscape at On the Boards - The Seattle PI reviews La Mélancolie des dragons Sep 13, 2015

Alice Kaderlan reviews La Mélancolie des dragons at the Seattle PI:

Philippe Queens’s brilliant “La Mélancolie des dragons” starts out at an excruciatingly slow pace. Four unkempt guys in a VW Rabbit are stranded in a snowstorm. They while away the time drinking beer, eating chips and constantly changing music CD’s.

Phillipe Quesne’s La Mélancolie des dragons Sep 12, 2015

Pictures don’t do this set justice. The white trees are so starkly beautiful within this dark pocket of woods.

Phillipe Quesne’s La Mélancolie de dragons is a homage to Antonin Artaud, who subverted logic and thought by creating a language without words, motivating audience members and actors to see a truer world.

Dragons & Ghosts Sep 11, 2015

La mélancolie des dragons is an idea of a creation for a theme park, that originated from the imagination of seven long-haired rockers. While stuck in the snow during a tour, they meet Isabelle, who came to help them with their car and inform them that it will take 7 days before they are able to run again.

Their idea of passing the boring time is to show Isabelle what the new park is.
