An Elephant

Frascati Producties/ Davy Pieters

Once upon a time, in a world where nothing shocks us anymore, five strangers meet during their journey.

Friendships are forged. Destinations changed.

Will they accept it?

An Elephant is a bombastic response to the power of manipulation within the contemporary mash-up world of instant entertainment, fake emotions and ‘reality TV’.

When fiction and reality become intertwined, this leads to a diffuse entity – we lose our grip on reality and wilfully allow ourselves we to be dashed to pieces in a plastic dream world.
