Story Jaune.png


In a secluded spot up in Greenland, in the deep of the Arctic night, a man sits alone, insomniac, disoriented, on the brink of a nervous breakdown.


Then his “friends” arrive, loud-mouthed and drinking, filling the frozen night with their chatter and outrageous tales. All the humour and humanity of Jørn Riel comes together here, at the insomniac’s bedside ...   

We may find that it is sometimes dangerous to name one’s desires, and that puppets can have more imagination than puppeteers…

Arctics Nignts ( "Les Nuits Polaires")  invites the spectator into an igloo for an intimate play about desire, friendship and madness.

Based on Jørn Riel's Novel "Des Racontars Arctiques"
