When Angels Fall

Raphaëlle Boitel / Cie L'Oublié(e) 

Duration 1h10 – all audiences from age 8

Creation 2018

A dystopia… imagining the future may be the best way to look at the present.
In a microcosm under heavy control,
mechanics play the role of what was once biological.
A group of men and women, survivors of a shattered world,
wander between the sky and a scorched earth, manipulated.
A disastrous world where frail humanity clings to life.

Men aspiring to fly or angels caught by something that plays at their expense ?
More than characters, symbols.
Carrying inside themselves, in their free will, in love and the beauty of letting go, t
he strength they need to change things.

What if nothing was unchangeable ?
