When the Croix-Rousse Theater turns into a farm. At the crossroads between performing arts and visual arts, director Philippe Quesne and his Franco-German team make people dream of a world where people decide to listen to finally hear the voices of the planet. A condemnation of the ravages of industrial agronomy.

We were able to see a phase in the creation of this show based on the powerful text of the Russian playwright Ivan Viripaev. Directed by the young Ambre Kahan, fourteen actors explore different situations (meeting, romantic quarrel, trip between friends, evening that could have been banal) that have in common living in alcoholic intoxication. Alcohol proves to be a strong reveal of each individual’s deep nature, but also of the state of our present world. To see without moderation.
From 23 to 27 November at Célestins
