Every year the Belgian town of Durbuy turns a corn field into a labyrinth that takes you on a journey past various short plays and sketches, games and puzzles. Each edition has its own theme, and in 2005 everything was about Tintin.
I remember a very entertaining afternoon with all the characters from Hergé’s books telling a story that was more or less based around Marlinspike or scenes from Temple of The Sun, the Secret of the Unicorn, Destination Moon, and others. Everyone was there, from Tintin and Haddock to the Thompsons to Bianca Castafiore, all excellently brought to life by a large number of amateur actors.
I took pictures, and after all these years, it’s good to share them. It seemed like a more gentle time, which it probably wasn’t.
And since dogs are famously hard to direct in a play, they gave Snowy the task of subtly pointing in the right direction in the labyrinth. On small signs, that is.
