A theater & visual arts project anchored in a urban context and developped from there [and not from an abstract stage] at every level. Parameters shift, that’s the challenge: how can we ‘amplify’ [theatralize] a context and it’s inhabitants in the design of a performance : a mix of social, aesthetic, economic, urbanistic, human, narrative with philosophic, esthetic, performative, dramaturgic. The project is a form of attention. Where does it takes us, which form[s], which narrative[s], which usership[s], [beyond spectatorship]… In process.
