We Players, Ondine

2015 | Lands End | performance

Written by Jean Giraudoux
Co-Directed by Carly Cioffi and Ava Roy

Once again, We Players has brought an enchanting performance to our national parks. Ondine presents the mystical tale of the love between a water sprite and a knight within the withered remains of Sutro Baths. The play is based on the story of Melusine dating as far back as 14th century France and developed in Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué’s novella Undine. The performance explores the timeless relationship between mankind and nature, while bringing the audience to Lands End, where the westernmost cliffs meet the Pacific Ocean. Viewers get an opportunity to see the tale unfold in a historic site, while hearing the sounds, smells, and sights of the sea the characters are challenged with.
