A mysterious gentleman. A young terrorist. The eve preceding destruction. A game of cat and mouse begins. Wit, wisdom, foolishness and drama intertwine with violins, questioning injustice and violence in our world. A war of ideas between old and new, between generations and beliefs. A new work inspired by Dostoyevsky.
An International, intergenerational, interdisciplinary company: The Elsewhere Ensemble is based partly on the richness and importance of working with different nationalities, generations and artistic disciplines. This production brings together French, Swiss, Belgium, and American; musicians and actors; an actor and writer with a lifetime of experience, young artists, and everything in between. The Elsewhere Ensemble was officially created in 2012 with the concerts: Invocation and “Un tour du monde en musique” given at the summer festival at the Chateau de Machy near Lyon, France.

Past works include “Chekhov Triptych – three Chekhov stories in concert”, “Mozart & The Happy Prince” (words and music around Mozart and Oscar Wilde), “The Velveteen Rabbit” – a concert for children. These pieces have been performed in Paris, Lyon, New York and Boston in both French and English.
