À l’origine fut la vitesse – Le testament de Sov Strochnis

Philippe Gordiani & Nicolas Boudier

Based on Alain Damasio’s sci-fi novel La Horde du Contrevent (“The Windwalkers”), this performance tells the story of a horde of adventurers and their quest for the mythical source of the winds, the “Extrême-Amont”. Spectators are equipped with a mask to wear with bone conduction headphones (where the actor’s voice resonates directly inside the spectator’s skull) and find themselves in a windswept universe, alongside the last survivor of the Horde. Combining video and music, this story opens up the limitless possibilities of the imagination.
