Jiro Taniguchi Author
Dorian Rossel Director

A Distant Quarter
All publics, from 10 years old.


Adapting Comic books to the theatre is not common, or easy. It is, however, what Swiss director Dorian Rossel has (successfully) managed to do, transferring onto a minimal stage set-up where variations of all sorts can happen from cartoonist Jiro Taniguchi’s manga, A Distant Quarter. As he comes back from a business trip, a man mysteriously becomes the teenager he used to be again and finds himself confronted again to buried questions, the secrets of his childhood. On the stage, characters with a split personality meet and swap. They go through the possible and the impossible with a similar fluidity, a light heartedness in humour and seriousness, which gives way to the pure emotion of childhood regained.
