Sur feuilles de celluloïd, en volume, 2D, 3D, tout numérique, qu’importe ! De toute façon, c’est vous qui êtes manipulés et non les personnages curieux de ces mondes qui ne le sont pas moins.

Séance Ô TROUBLE

Public affectionné, tu sais que la tendresse qu’on te porte est parfois celle que voue un scientifique illuminé à son patient (ou cobaye). Et si ce dernier ignore tout de l’expérience en cours, ce doux sentiment se transforme en une délectation équivoque. Alors ? Ça commence à chatouiller le ventre et à gratter le cervelas ? L’inverse est aussi observable. Ces troubles sont courants en début de festival.

Séance LA POIRE DE L’ANGOISSE

En raison des secousses intermittentes attendues lors de cette séance, nous vous déconseillons les crèmes glacées (les voisins de siège coiffés d’un cône pistache apprécient modérément les manifestations d’enthousiasme). À cette heure avancée, il est raisonnable de se quitter sur quelques notes grinçantes. Plus tard, faisant le constat de votre sommeil en fuite, vous aurez tout le loisir de réfl échir à votre condition et de vous demander si cette forme tapie dans le noir est réelle ou non.
