Afternoon of a Foehn | June 2

As part of La French Touch Festival, the Institut Français de Birmanie is glad to welcome Non Nova Company for two exceptional performance shows in Yangon & Mandalay.

On stage: a series of ingeniously arranged table fans, an intriguing puppeteer, and dozens of plastic bags. A foehn wind is created by the turbines that surround the stage. Simple grocery bag characters come to life and flutter to the opening notes of Debussy’s famous prelude in the flow of air orchestrated by the puppet master. Blowing in the wind, they perform an amazing choreography that surprises and delights. Book in advance at [email protected]
