On Sunday afternoons in his living room, Serge presents miniature performances for small groups of friends. Using low-tech special effects and a lovingly chosen soundtrack, these home-grown spectacles inadvertently communicate the very nature of art and the human desire to create it. In these delightful micro dramas, one somewhat eccentric man demonstrates how the simplest object, the merest gesture, can produce wonder.

French theatre maker Philippe Quesne has fast developed a significant international reputation and his work now comes to Dublin following runs around the world from New York to Brazil. L’Effet de Serge humorously investigates the implicit futility in our daily routines and the magic that can be found in the ordinary. It promises to be one of the most charming and funny shows in this year’s Festival.

Co-produced with ménagerie de verre, Paris with the support of Le Forum/Scène conventionnée de Blanc-Mesnil and Festival actOral montévidéo, Marseille.

Performed in English.
