Philippe Quesne

Born 1970 in Paris (France),
lives and works in Paris (France)

At the entrance to the former Fagor Factory, the stage director and visual artist Philippe Quesne, who has headed the Théâtre des Amandiers near Paris since 2014, imports a piece of island straight from his most recent production, Crash Park, in which a handful of survivors use all manner of means to adapt to their new environment. Taken out of its original setting, the island, mounted on a rotating stage, becomes a public-speaking platform and the hub of the cultural programming of the 15th Lyon Contemporary Art Biennale.
