The same curious moles who visit different parts of Santiago and Valparaíso by day turn into a rock band when the sun goes down. They put on a concert that takes the audience into a parallel universe: a world with no words or humans, somewhere dark and electrifying that vibrates to the underground music of garages and basements. This show explores both how music is made and its power. El concierto de los topos is part of the Welcome to Caveland theater project, created by French artist Philippe Quesne, with the playful, greedy and sometimes aggressive moles looking deep into why they exist and discovering their interest in rites and the arts.

Exploring the limits of the performing arts
Before focusing on urban installations, French artist Philippe Quesne (Les Lilas, 1970) worked for ten years creating sets for theater, operas and exhibitions. In 2003, he founded Vivarium Studio, a kind of laboratory for innovation, involving painters, actors, dancers and musicians. Quesne is interested in portraying the relationship between humans and nature, as well as in extreme experiences - either very big or very small - in everyday life. Since 2014, he’s been the director of the Nanterre-Amandiers National Theater Center.
