From the press release: “Inspired by a real concert that took place in the Paris Catacombs in 1897, the audience of Les Innocents/The Innocents prowls the catacombs like ghosts. Gui, a composer on a quest for love, emerges from the maze to encounter eccentric and musical ghosts who misdirect their pursuit and inspire chaos for the living and dead. Les Innocents/The Innocents presents realistic and grossly human queer characters in mythic circumstances to investigate our relationship to duty, death, and defeat.
