Created in Basel on October 22. 2021 – Offene Kirche Elisabethen 

The "Gargouilles", grimacing figures, spew the rainwater from the roofs of the cathedrals ... "Chimères" (chimeras) are mirages, illusions, imaginary worlds that can haunt us in dreams.
"Gargouilles et Chimères" is a dive our dreams and nightmares, the stories of people like us, a day shortened to 90 minutes and as all events of DFW, a world of Magic in which the audience moves freely like in a private party, sharing room and emotions with the artists . And even if the audience has left, it remains, the world of others, revealed to us for one evening ...

A piece from Catherine Habasque with international award winning artists, which emotions you will share and enjoy with a glass of wine like in a private party.
