OUTDOOR CINEMA: The Legend of Kaspar Hauser

Short url: 


The walls of the theatre have become too small to shelter those who want to come out into the summer night. And besides, under the roof the stars don’t shine and the wind doesn't blow. Hot summer isn't for solitude and timid encounters. So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to take a light and move out and wait for the night to fall and the kaleidoscopic beam to glow above the friends. This summer, we'll start our outdoor cinema program with a three-night musical journey in our inner courtyard. We will begin in Amsterdam’s 70s punk scene, pass through a techno riveting delirium and terminate in the Sahara dunes, where the Tamasheq blues howls over the crickets’ chirp.

The 21st century's Kaspar Hauser is taken to a semi-deserted Mediterranean island by the waves. Almost dead, but still wearing his headphones and Adidas pants; Kaspar is destined for a Messianic mission. He sets out to bring rave culture to the decayed island. It is the Sheriff (Vincent Gallo) that adores him. And it's the Grand Duchess, the island’s regent, who doesn’t accept the newcomer and sends her henchman (also Gallo) to restore order. An electrifying, unclassifiable marvel conducted by Vitalic’s always-ascending soundtrack.
