PROJECT “THEATRES OF TWIN-CITIES”
LE RUGISSEMENT DE LA LIBELLULE, NANTERRE, FRANCE
A world famous Moscow professor befriends a stray dog and resolves to achieve a daring scientific first by transplanting into it the genital and pituitary gland of a dead person. But the results are wholly unexpected: as the dog slowly transforms into a human being, the doctor’s life descends into chaos…The Roar of the dragonfly adapts Mikhail Bulgakov’s hilarious satire into a theater and musical show that combines realism, fantastic and grotesque.

LE RUGISSEMENT DE LA LIBELLULE (The dragonfly roar) was created in Nanterre (France) in 2002. The theatre company has worked both on classical texts (Moli?re’s “The Misanthrope”, Georg B?chner’s “Danton’s Death”…) and contemporary plays (Liubomir Simovic’s “Chopalovic’s travelling theatre”, Laurent Labruy?re’s “The Whale”…). The dragonfly roar has been working in Velikiy Novgorod for almost one month in 2005 writing and rehearsing the play, “Novgorod – east exit”, which has been played about one hundred times in different French cities since then (especially during the international theatre festival in Avignon in 2007). The company has already participed in Veliki Novgorod’s Kingfestival with Vladimir Mayakovski’s «Cloud in pants» (2011) and One guitar in Americas (2015).
