Planète Vapeur


The Forgotten World

directed by Arlo Le Gwern

Behold this fantastic creature passing through the streets.
Look at the fire, witness the shadows dancing in the night.
Let the Dragon make your forgotten dreams come true!

Who can remember the forgotten dreams of childhood?
Who can remember those fantastic worlds with their strange beings and beasts?
Fauns! Magicians! Fairies and knights!

Artistic Director and producer Pierre Povigna created Planète Vapeur in 2006. Having studied architecture, Povigna was always passionate about complex mechanisms and giant biomechanical machines. Working with an amazing team of technicians and artists, Gérard Artufel as designer, Françoise Povigna as costumer, Arlo Le Gwern as writer and director, Povigna and Planète Vapeur bring fantastic and magical worlds to life.

Dive into their extraordinary world as this enormous Dragon wanders the streets of Galway!
