The open studio La princesse mystérieuse is the opportunity to discover the video recording (52') of the play performance at the Philharmonie du Luxembourg presented in September 2019.
This international project, between Germany, Austria, Urkraine, Portugal, Brazil and France, is a story written by Benjamin Prins, Pénélope Driant and Nina Ball (complete distribution under "Partners"). They were freely inspired by La Peregrinação by Fernão Mendes Pinto and Memorial do Convento by José Saramago to write this musical dance pantomime.
Pinto, the hero of episode 1, has become a megalomaniac king who wants to subject the whole world to his own illusions.
Only an isolated region of the world resists it: a region inhabited by a mysterious tribe, whose chief is a princess with supernatural powers.
Finally placed on the Terra Australis, the architect launched the construction of a new royal building. But a terrible accident changes the course of events.
The Princess, imprisoned, is tormented between the duty to protect her people and her love for the Architect.
The fanatical king finally receives a lesson in humility that transforms him.
Benjamin Prins (France) is a recipient of the Cité internationale des arts Writing Committee.
