Creation in 2017

Staging by Alain Patiès, Compagnie La Grande Fugue

Qaraqorum is a scenic project and our first collaboration with the company La Grande Fugue, centred around the works of composer François-Bernard Mâche. Mâche draws his inspiration from Franciscan monk Guillaume de Rubrouck’s travels to Mongolia in 1255 and the monk’s discovery of new peoples. Qaraqorum thus evokes questions of tolerance, secularism and the need to confront our prejudices with the notion of the Other.
