“Semeurs de panique”
Author: Mathilde Souchaud
The world is burning, temperatures are exploding, peasants are committing suicide in despair, and a young girl named Jo, accompanied by Gentiane, her pet frog, set off in search of a magic deer capable of regenerating what has died. They battle against Despéranda, who has led the adults to abandon this earthly paradise to greed and destruction.

En verre et contre tout (France)

“L’Histoire d’un.e Autre”
For this new creation, the company is tackling the construction of the “Other”, the invention of the “savage”, which combines human exhibitions and scientific research into “races”. Through shadow and projection theater, paper theater and slam, the show questions the legacy of this vision of the Other. Residencies supported by the programme “Cooperation Residencies” of the Agence Culturelle Grand Est.

“L’Isle aux Singes”
L’Isle aux Singes, the reverie of a mysterious music group, plunges into Western monkey imagery and shares its journey with us. A musical and hallucinatory ritual, sometimes grotesque, L’Isle aux Singes invites us, in a protean language borrowing from ethology, cinema and pop culture, to return to the wild, where humans make way and observe.

“Déplacer les montagnes”
Inspired by a geological fault, this miniature-scale landscape installation is an invitation to pass beneath the earth’s crust, to slip through the crack, to compose, assemble, make and unmake the landscape, to literally move mountains. To cross the landscape is to transform it, to modify it, to leave a trace of one’s passage.
 The installation is made up of dozens of hand-crafted objects in chestnut, cherry, pine and beech; inspired by the shape of Scandinavian runes, they represent humanist ideas and concepts, interlocking, dissociating and assembling endlessly.
