Video-concert, inspired by the film King Kong, by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack (1933)
> Premiere 15 October 2017, Théâtre Comédie Odéon (Lyon)
After the lunar voyage and the fantastical poetry of Georges Méliès, re-visited in the video-concert “M. Méliès & Géo Smile”, the same team is back, embarking on dangerous adventures in the footsteps of King Kong. What stays hidden in the unexplored depths of this savage beast’s nature? We’ll embark on a voyage to find out in the company of brass-playing artillery-men, an incredible showman and a percussive video-artist: 5 mischievous re-inventors will be working behind the décor of this monument of cinema and shaking things up in order to re-discover the heroine… and more than that, re-examine the themes of this huge iconographic fresco.
