• duration: 38′
Les Frères Méduses take a train ride through the surreal and ground-breaking landscape of George Méliès, filmmaker and special effects pioneer. This journey churns through a selection of truly eccentric films culminating in a daring expedition to the sun. The musicians blend composition, improvised music and movement together with Méliès fantastic images and create a production without words.
The scenographic MEKANISK was commissioned in 2012 by the Akershus fylkeskommune and presented on a 6-week tour in elementary schools throughout Bærum, Norway. It was designed by Pierre-Michaël Faure and produced by Johannes Nome.
